Should swap over no issue at all.
1.6 is 1.6.
All part are interchangable.
I have never heard of a 1982 vanagon diesel with power steering?? !!
The steering wheel on an 82 vanagon is bigger to help you steer without the power steering.

Good luck, should be fun and easy.

Subject: [Vwdiesel] 1.6 NA SWAP

I am replacing my 1.6 NA (Code ME 045 651)  (1986 I think) which is
currently in a 1982 Vanagon, and have been given another 1.6 NA 
(Code JK 245 546) (Not sure of year, but it came out of a car.)
So: I am wondering about the flywheel and clutch assembly, and if it is 
transferable, because on the engine that came out, the
flywheel is inboard (closer to #4 cylinder) of the pressure plate, and the 
new engine has the pressure plate on, but not flywheel.

So, the Vanagon engine mounts oil pan and power steering look like they 
should switch over ok, but I'm not sure about the
flywheel clutch.  and am wondering if folks here think
it would be worth my time.  The flywheel teeth on the
engine that came out are in good condition.

I looked in the archives and in the Bentley Vanagon book and could only find 
some general engine code information.

Thank you.
