heater not available in the US.  ALso the Emden 3E

Shouldn't make any difference. As long as it was a '73 U engine, the 
parts book only shows one piston option, world wide. Sounds like your 
'73 had been rebuilt.

For the record, if you went to Germany and bought a VW to bring home, 
under what was called "The Tourist Delivery Program" what you got was 
a genuine US code VW. That's how this was possible.
