Re: annoying hesitation with carb replacement

I have the same hesitation as Petros, but it's not so minor. Any sort of movement into the middle of the throttle's travel will cause the engine to stumble unless you back off, or push through to full throttle. Especially scary when trying to make a left turn against traffic. I have recently rebuilt...

I'm busy the next couple weekends, but beyond that I have time to meet up for a mini car show and lunch somewhere? Maybe a drive?

Re: Halogen Headlight Upgrade

I have a set of quad-beam AutoPals on one of my Subarus and I'm not impressed with their quality.

Re: Halogen Headlight Upgrade

Topic 1: The only way to upgrade to LED headlights is with a housing that is designed for LEDs. The light profile from an LED chip is vastly different from a halogen light. Drop in H4 style LED bulbs are *horrible* at getting light on the road from a housing designed for a halogen H4. Just don't do...

Iggzmon,

Prof runs Subarus as well and that is what he has pictured. He also has a Tercel. I believe the Subaru includes a pretty significant body lift which in turn lets them run larger tires.

Chris
Correct, this example probably has a 4 -in. lift with ~27-28 -in. tires.

That IS pretty cool! Though as the article states, there already was the Celica All-trac.

I resorted to using aviation gasket sealant to seal the washer after tightening the bolt, which seemed to help after the goo set after a few days.
Next time use some Teflon tape on the drain plug's threads, no cure time on that.

Re: 1983 Tercel SR5 4WD on Copart in Eugene, OR

This road trip reminds me of the Roadkill boys on their adventures. I was hoping to do the same with a recently acquired 1987 Subaru RX coupe, but after a quick test drive I noticed a coolant leak, so onto the U-Haul it went. ...The Professor zooms by, New Edition's "Cool It Now" blasting from a pai...

Where are you located? I'm interested in finding a few of these parts:

5th spare alloy wheel and lug nuts
an adjustable intermittent wiper switch
A working VSV
Driver's side window rubber in good condition
Black front seat belts (if buckles aren't damaged)
Any word on these parts?

You can contact local people on the Row52 app (or website?) who will pull and ship parts for you. I've done it once with great results.
