Hello all.

I just bought a 1980 VW Dasher with the 1.5 Diesel motor in it. the original motor has a crack in the block and is not repairable. The guy i bought it from had purchashed a 1.6L Diesel motor to swap it out with, and he claims its from a 1978 VW Rabbit Truck. The motor is currently torn down to just a block and needs to be cleaned and put back together. I need to know how to read the motor code on the side to figure out what year it is, and what type of head gasket i need to buy, since as im sure you are aware.... there are a few different types.

any help on this subject would be great!
