I had a few Subarus back in the mid- 80's & I recently acquired an Outback which had leaky head gaskets that I repaired. I loved my 88 GL & this Outback is truly a fun car. I find them relatively easy (not as easy as my '67 mgb, however) to work on. I have an opportunity to acquire another & was hoping to get some engine swap advice. I'm pretty new to computer forums but this website looks excellent. Thank you for the chance to pose some questions. I'm looking forward to 'meeting' some Subaru experts.

Yea...lots of great info here. Your like the lone wolf way over there... keep an eye at the junk yards for any finds etc... that you care to share with us . I hate to see good old Subaru's go to a crusher.... Baker Oregon has a couple pop up now and then but a bit far for me....
FYI: there are several gatherings with the subaru's, the big one is usually the West Coast Subaru show in July, from kids to older people show off their rigs... Generation 1 to current models... great time.

High wide n lonesome .... especially the northeastern area, eastern Oregon is cowboy country, all right. Antelope and sage brush out there. (I like the more rocky area south toward Burns and Prineville. Great scenery down there).
In that eastern corridor, La Grande and Baker City are each a veritable metropolis. Don't know what you'll find for recycle/junk yards... but you might spot a parked/junked Subbie in somebody's yard.
That's a dry area (excepting the snow season, of course). I'm thinking you might find some rigs in good shape out there.
