I have no clue which part of the block was causing the malfunction. The only way aside from a bench test, would be to reverse engineer... I'm sure turning to the left was putting pressure on one of the lines and a solenoid was failing to operate correctly. Just not sure which one that would be..... Good technical docs on the block would help that process if they exist other than in the German labs. This is definitely an ebay or junkyard replacement over new....
