Hi everyone. New to the site just picked up a 1983 Kuban with a 1.6 vw motor. I don't have a key for it so I don't no if it runs are what all is wrong with it. How do I go about getting a key for it? Are is there an easy way to start it with out a key so I don't send money if it don't run and drive. Thanks tall tire.

The best way is to just hot wire the fuel solenoid, you will need to also connect the glow plugs, again just hot wire it for about 10 seconds then hot wire the starter solenoid. If it has not run for a while it may need priming. I have used an outboard motor bulb in the fuel line in the past, or just keep cranking, make sure you have a really good battery or a vehicle to jump it. Make sure you got fuel and it's out of gear. Good luck
