Re: New to subaru's

Keep in mind that whatever lift you add at the strut, there will be a greater lift at the wheel. A lift will also cause a need for alignment. Dennis I don't think the ones I used to fly even had wheel pants. I think every student pilot has the need for a "runway jack" at some point when they first s...

Re: New to subaru's

Yeah, I currently have a 2" lift on my front and am making blocks to lower the engine, transmission, driveshaft carrier, and rear axle cradle. Right now, my front CV axles look like the landing gear on a Cessna. Dennis

Re: New to subaru's

putting an engine together for it One thing I can add is only use Subaru head gaskets or the special head gaskets from a dealer in Oregon (forgot the name, but I can hunt it down). I have done heads on 2 Subie engines, one a DOHC (1998) and one a SOHC (2006). On each engine I reused the head bolts ...

Re: Island truck, Maui, Should I buy this?

Just over a tear ago when I started looking for a Baja, a co-worker suggested I contact his friend at a local Subaru dealership as they had just taken an '05, one owner, in trade. The "friend" told me it needed head gaskets "they all do or will", brakes, and something else I can't remember. He said ...

Re: messy oil changes!

Again, my cheapie (< 5.00) drain pan catches all my oil and the oil that drips from the filter on removal. To be honest, I often take an ice pick (pick) and poke a hole in the bottom of the filter and another hole on the side. This minimizes the amount of oil from the filter. I picked up this practi...

Re: messy oil changes!

What are you trying to drain the oil into? I've had 5 Subarus (basically all the same oil drain), use a regular round (cheap open top) drain pan, and never had a problem with mess. I will admit to removing the plastic panel that was under the engine on most of my Foresters. I can't remember if my Ba...

While far from the highest, mine is now in the "200k Club". This is the third Subaru I've owned to break the 200K mark. Dennis

Re: ENGINE MECHANICS PLEASE HELP A FELLOW MEMBER

You probably are NOT screwed. Many JDM (most? All?) did not come with the EGR. Many have successfully drilled and tapped the hole for the EGR tube. I'm sure there are instructions, Illustrations, pictures, or maybe even a Youtube. Here's the best part: You don't have to pull the cylinder head. Drill...

Crossbar repair

When I first got my Baja, I removed the crossbars to make cleaning and waxing easier (I did this to both of my current Foresters too). On the Baja, the screws on the front bar were seized in the little brass inserts, so the inserts just spun in the plastic clamps :evil:. If only Subaru had followed ...

Re: What have you hauled? Post Pics !!!

Depending on how far and how fast. I would get 2 2x4 x 8s (they will fit in the back with the rear seat down and the hatch open). Put the 22x4s on your existing roof rack, and secure the mattress with tie straps to the roof racks, and to the forward end (or both ends) of the 2x4s. This would keep th...
