The other brand of gas heater is Webasto. These (or the Eberspacher brand) were also optioned in the VW vans+ Westfalia campers.
AFIK, all 930s had an overboost /fuel pump kill mode.

Thanks guys.....in relation to the heater would they not have been located up front? So why the lines going to the rear of the car? Where did they take the fuel source from?


There is an overboost/fuel pump pressure kill switch in the manifold alright.

The one pictured below was on the car when I got it....have since removed it for the correct smaller type. Would this larger type have anything to do with a boost controller being fitted?

CFD, it's interesting that the device in the first picture looks somewhat like a boost gauge sending unit (without the orange silicone, heat sleeve over it) - does your car have a working boost gauge?

Yes, that was my initial thought, they were standard fitment in the tach in '77 alright, but not in '76, and there is no sign in the dash where there might have been one fitted by a previous owner although who knows what might have been fitted and later removed....certainly nothing obvious now anyway....

Good job done at the engine.

Where the lines goes in the Front ?

I guess it was for the boost control.

Yes, more investigation needed to trace the line still there to see where under the dash it actually ends...
