Hi, my 1982 vw diesel rabbit has a surage about 40 mph. Is this a air leak or seals weak?

Hi, surging generally means a fuel problem, and probably too lean.
A weak pump is one possibility, so you can check pressure with a gauge, another possibility is a sensor is bad.
There are air mass, air temperature, engine temperature, throttle position, oxygen, etc., sensors.
They can all be checked with an ohmmeter, and while methods vary, bad ones usually are 0 or infinite ohms. Air mass and oxygen sensors can get coated and need cleaning.

Need a manual for a 1982 vw rabbit pickup

Go to faxonautoliterature. They carry a Bentley service manual ($29) for your pickup. The Bentley manual is as close as you can get to a factory service manual, they make the service manuals for VW. You may also want to look at Alldatadiy for supplemental info. You can sign up for 1 year for about $30. I've used both and had good luck figuring out what I needed. Get the Bentley first and then use alldata for backup. You may also want to look at signing up with vwvortexforum. No cost and they have vehicle specific forums for help.
Hope this helps.

Have a 1982 VW Rabbit conv. The heater fan blows then stops.

Sounds like the resistor has blown from what you say... this is the 4" long Green ceramic bit on the heater blower motor... you can buy them seperately.

But.. watch out, the switch on the dash on Mk1 Golfs / Caddys are very common
