Since she's running well with the new ignition, next comes the new wiring harness installation.
So do you have any pictures of the linkage? If so I can put them here if ya want

A new wiring harness, those aren't much fun to replace, I have never worked on a Transporter/Bus, but then again I'm sure yours isn't a normal wiring harness, but it may be just a few pieces of wire added on to connect the Ford engine
Speaking about a wiring harness, I think I'm gonna hafta start saving every penny I can and buy one for my Volksrod, it's broken and won't start, I'll explain all that in my own ongoing Volksrod page after the weekend
