Thanks. Read that awhile ago when starting my education on this foreign subject. Good refresher, so thanks for reminding me of it.

Good news: your alternator label agrees with your datacard.

Wood floors: you have plywood on your floor (or under the mat, if it's a passenger van)
Smoker Package: you have ash trays and cigarette lighter
Parking Lights: you don't have European-style side marker-lights

have fun

WM3,5 Telma retarder CC80 ?

KL5 Fuel filter with water seperator
Thought all the NCV3 had the seperator ?

Q67 Rear towing lug.
Is this actually a lug you can use to pull the Sprinter out of the mud?
Or.. is it a tie-down for transport?

K60 Tail pipe straight to rear?
Mine ends at the spare tire.

That's something that appears on many build-sheets.
A "Telma retarder" is a set of electrical coils near the propeller shaft, the intent of which is to serve as a mild braking system. (search the forum for Telma to see other postings). No one that i'm aware of actually -has- the full retarder group. (perhaps WM3 are merely holes drilled in the frame to -attach- one?)

These data sheets define what gets built. So whether or not the vehicle is available with/without one, the bits and pieces still get -listed-. I'm sure there are some rigs (Natural Gas powered?) that don't have water separators. Or non-diesel, for that matter.

I think the latter.

Some (such as cab/chassis) bend 45 degrees early and vent out in front of the rear wheels. Box bodies with no side doors would be eligible for that.
