My 1993 Loyale: Work In Progress
Posted 04 April 2011 - 01:09 AM
Roughly 175k on the ticker.. runs like a beauty. Just needs some definite TLC.. maybe a beating or two I was inspired... or was it forced? I'm not sure :-p to create a thread about my repairs to my new baby. Beginning to end. If there is an end!
So here she is in all her glory.
Posted 04 April 2011 - 01:31 AM
rehooked everything up and she started right up! So I'm not sure why.... any ideas? I don't think I did anything special! Lol.
Posted 04 April 2011 - 01:34 AM
Thats gonna take some work...
You need to do some body work, paint it and put some black pug alloys on it.
EJ swap etc.
At least youre Fuel Injected...
I need to do a Fuel Injection swap, but Ill do that with the EJ swap lol.
Are Loyales pretty common in your parts? be able to get the body parts?
Posted 04 April 2011 - 01:35 AM
I wanna see this at WCSS but I wanna see the progress for the next 4-5 months lol.
Posted 04 April 2011 - 02:16 AM
I hope this will be an on-going thread like both of mine were!

Looks like you have quite the project ahead of you, although it's in better shape then most of the old subis I have started with

Could have gunk in the fuel line and the pressure from the pump pushed it out.
Posted 04 April 2011 - 03:49 PM
Any ideas on why all the sudden fuel started getting to the filter? One thing I forgot to mention before is that the car had sat for over a year... which I'm supposing contributed. Thx
If i'm trying to start a loyale that hasn't ran in a while, and it wont start, I rap on the underside of the fuel pump tray with a small hammer or something. About half the time the pump starts working and works fine afterwards. So, it's not uncommon for them to "stick" after sitting. Or, like Rob said, maybe a ground wire problem which will eventually show up again.

Here's a general link to more pix of the car.

I've got a hood and fender (light blue) if you can't find them closer. I'm about 100 miles from you.

At least I dont use Fram oil filters like a certain users avatar picture... ahaha jkjk

And the car was 200 from a friend. Quite the deal. He needed it gone, I needed a car! His sister rear ended a truck. effed up the hood, fender, lights, etc. He used the other light on another car... it sat for a year when he decided to get rid of it. Perfect timing!
Tom you butthead! You're on usmb but not yahoo?? :-p
Posted 05 April 2011 - 12:32 AM
Lets see... What am I doing:
Posted 05 April 2011 - 12:39 AM
WIX or Genuine Filters, NEVER EVER use a Fram. That will be the death of most any vehicle.

Lol! I know sorry :-p I shouldn't keep you up so late! Plus I have school in the morning... Hopefully I'll have time to run to the junkyard after school tomorrow or wednesday!
Just remember, I AM always here for you.
I don't have really any extra EA82 parts which sucks. Just slap some Legacy headlights in there, little bondo work and they will be "Custom"

1000rpm is normal for the EA82 if you've only been letting it idle.
Posted 06 April 2011 - 12:48 AM
Posted 06 April 2011 - 12:52 AM
My EA82 will drop down in idle pretty quick if you jab the throttle.
Posted 06 April 2011 - 12:59 AM
Embarassing as all hell to try and start out super quick against a honda and hit the throttle hard and kill the car but I caught up lol
