New ECUs are no longer available, and when they were they cost three times more than a GoWesty rebuilt unit. Two brands of ECU's were used in 1983-85 Vanagons, both with same part number. One was made by Triumph Adler (T/A), the other was Bosch. Please verify what you have, and make your selection in the drop-down menu.
What makes a GoWesty rebuilt ECU's worth buying? Well, they are not just wiped down, tested, and labeled. We have found from experience what commonly goes bad in these suckers, and they are fixed to better than new. All old, brittle original solder on every internal component is removed and re-soldered. Common failure electronic components, whether they test good or bad, are replaced. Then the unit is bench tested for proper function.
We have a stellar track record on this item, and are extremely confident in their quality and performance. However, if you feel you have received a faulty ECU, please read our return policy below, carefully.
