The HLAs ticked mildly for about 5 minutes, then they all just stopped ticking. It's probably the quietest I'll ever hear an EA82 (at idle ).

Looks good Sesh! Now drop that mutha in!!
Done with the engine. Now all I have to do is change the oil. It sits right at 200 degrees F and oil pressure is good. I know you guys hate pictures:

Packed with marine bearing grease (for those water crossings, and fertilizer resistant!).

In the mean time, the starter switch is now a pushbutton type. I'll post pictures to follow. It's neatly recessed to the left of the steering column. The way it sits it is very difficult to accidentally touch. Now we're flying "Millennium Falcon" style.

Now it's rear wheel bearing time:
We should have a thread devoted to nasty wheel bearings... I have some to keep yours company.

Anyways, I have about 45 miles on the rebuilt engine and it seems real happy. I have a little coolant leak at the base of the carb (grrrrr) so I guess I'll attack that guy and it should be all buttoned up. Thanks again for everyone's help. I'll post more when it's lift time.

-Installed 4" SJR lift kit
-Re-wired the electric fan to come on via relay and possibly will install another
-deleted the pulley driven fan
-Got OEM gaskets and fixed the coolant leak at the carb
-Made my own PCV oil seperator with a few fittings and a spaghetti sauce jar. So far, I've caught about 3 oz of oil on it's way to my intake and a bunch of condensed water.
Pics to come...

On another note, I installed the PCV catch jar. It works great. I get more condensation in it than oil, but it definitely keeps some oily gunk out of the intake. Forgive the tacky prego jar. I plan on making a nicer mount and getting longer hoses in the future.
I have to take more pics with the lift, but here are a few teasers.

installed new radiator fan/thermo switch (thin and cheap)
switched carb jets to 130/140 mains, 180/200 air correctors.
Ordered GPS parts to replace dash clock.
Re sealed carb mount w/ OEM gaskets.
Runs like a dream, and rubs at full lock like a dream.

Thanks! I'm glad this could be a resource for others. I did all this on a really low budget but did just enough to have a clean car. I saw the pics of yours. We have twins! You should start a thread and link it here.
For sure! I started this thread (http://www.ultimates...ad.php?t=117524) with build updates in mind... I will probably start a new, cleaned up one once I get her running dependably and really start the "fun" stuff! I'm still unsure if the heads are OK and have to get her up to being able to be driven around some so I can make a clear determination on my next steps.

Importantly: these bushings, as well as other raybestos bushings I've ordered from them, are a Subaru branded product. They had the right Subaru number and logo, etc...
I also ordered raybestos steering rack bushing and there were Subaru parts in Subaru numbered bags in raybestos boxes.
