New arrival and diversion

Yesterday we had an unexpected visitor drop by the shop with his new TDI Vanagon.  The new owner picked it up in E. Canada for a song ($12k) and on his way back to his home in BC he swung by here for us to do a once over on his rig and do a few small repairs:

Three TDI vans holding court.

02G 5-spd T5/EV trans from Europe.  This was the trans used on later T5 models behind a 5-cyl TDI or a VR6.  It doesn't fit the 4-cyl TDIs we like to mess around with.

Packing still coming off but it's clear the linkage connections are quite different than the 02B trans.
