[Vwdiesel] Help me out, folks... 1.5D into '88 Fox

I would not even consider using a York style compressor - they draw
way more power than necessary and we can ill afford that with our
low-output engines. Figure out a way to adapt a rotary compressor -
they only draw 1.5hp.
BTW If anyone still wants to use the York compressor, I have the one
from my '85 Quantum TD sitting on the garage floor. It appears to be
in good condition. I'm not going to use it even though it will bolt
right up to my engine.
