First off let me say, I cant spell. So please dont hold that against me.
I am also a Honda guy..please dont hold that against me either..
Me and my mom picked up a 82 Brat for 500.00. I love Subies but have never owned one. We are in the process of geting this thing going, Its beed sitting for 5 years. I think it needs a fuel pump.after changing all the fluids,battery,plugs and wires it is not geeting gas.
Anyways here is my question it has the 3rd headlite..way cool but it wont stay on..I rump roast u me its the switch, but what the hell is the 3rd lite even called and where could I find a new switch? also looking for the supports for the topper..any help would be greatly apreciated..
Thanks
Jay

The 3rd light has lots of names. It should work when the high beams are on if I recall :-\

Some names:
Passing lamp, cyclops eye, 3rd eye and probably more.

Yup! But hello and welcome aboard anyway!

Suggest you put your question up on the old gen forum--you'll get a lot more eyeballs there.

As for the problem of no gas, did you change the fuel filters? If it has been sitting for 5 years, there is probably a bunch of gunk/rust in the fuel and it could be clogging up the filters/ not allowing gas to flow to the carb. There are 2 filters, by the way - one under the hood, and one underneath near the gas tank.

I know how that goes. Going to be school to be a diesel mechanic. Is mom supporting me for my success? Nope. Free service on her diesel truck...

What kind of Subie you want in your fleet?
