My 2000 Outback s/w AWD has a vibration when accelerating that has been diagnosed as a rear axle problem. Could it be something else and where can I find rear axles at a reasonable price?

Ed and I are close friends. There were two Hood River WCSS'. If you saw a heavy set guy that looked like Santa clause, that was probably me. Saltspring looks like the biggest of the island group. Looks like the closest ferry route is from Sidney, going to the sounth end of the island. The one from Tsawassen dock just north west of Prevost Island. Now that I'm retired, I have a lot of time to travel locally and abroad, so I just might head up that way someday.

Heads bolted on just like a dream. Heads fit perfectly. Now the torquing sequence, that was a pain. Hopefully will get it all back together this week. We labelled all the intake and connections so shuld be OK. I will keep you updated.

Hi Saltspring Island is one of the Gulf Islands - akin to the San Juans in proximity and geographical features too. It is half an hour by ferry from Vancouver Island via Swartz Bay or Crofton and about 1.5 hours from Vancouver (Tsawassen) via ferry. I like the Dead - always loved the skull and roses logos they used but my wife is the real Dead 'junkie.' I envy you Washington State folks easy access to the older Subaru models and parts. I'm an EA 81 fan and have driven nothing but since '84 apart from a Quest Van when our kids were involved in every team sport under the sun. I've been to 2 of the West Coast Subaru shows (Hood River and Shelton) and have probably seen you there. I know Ed Rachner - he is my main source In Seattle for those hard to come by parts. If you are up our way give a shout. Take care Richard

Where is Salt Spring Island, I live in Washington state and have been to BC many time, but I've never heard of that place. Oh, and I love your avatar, would I be safe in assuming the you are a "Dead Head"?

Skip, I have a 98 sub Legacy Outback Limited 2.5L with intermittant overheating and small amount of oil in coolant. Decided to pull engine and change HG's and investigate if it has a cracked head. Some mechanic told me I needed to use new cylinder head torque to yield bolts because they were designed for a 1 time use, while another mechanic told me he does HG on Subaru's every day and always reuses them. 12 new bolts add a substantial cost to the job. What is you call.
