:) yeah. after I scrambled to get the Forester and Baja in the garage (after hearing quarter sized hail in DSM) , I had some time to study the FSM and find the alt as I had taken that off some time ago...

the storm didn't seem too bad here at least but I don't hear lots of weather... this house is actually insulated and helps deaden the sounds. the old house had nearly zilch for insulation...

still to complete...
choke wiring
Temp gauge wiring
evacuate AC system and remove

I was gonna wire in the tach, but it's a DL :) so no tach... might need to get an oil pressure switch for the dummy light too, as the pump has the sender for a GL Oil Pressure Gauge....

maybe I'll bust apart an ea81 cluster and duct tape the oil pressure and tach to your dash :) then it will be a GL :lol:

I'm going to add a kill switch to your dash for the grounding of the fuel pump relay (used to happen through the ECU, but since thats gone now....)

well, since there's no muffler on it it hard to tell if it's leaking at the Y pipe junction... but based on the way it flexes, I'd say it's rusted through...

you're gonna need a new stock Y pipe anyway. it's mounted enough to get it home :)

I'll be home all day Saturday for pickup :) I'll be clearing the garage for the city wide garage sale day....

I even tucked up your wiring under the dash and reconnected your CB.

the trans didn't have any knobs on it when I got it (already gone...) so I put on the one I pulled off the SS, and for the D/R selector, I tapped another spare t-case knob I had from something else...

I'm taking it to get the AC evacuated tomorrow afternoon. maybe today if I can leave work early enough.

it's on solid, but the clamping force is reduced on the side that the flange is rotated on... I had to use my bottoming tap to clean up and cut a few more threads since it seems a little loose when I put the studs in... but, the good thing with this engine is that the ASV spacers are still there, and can be tapped if the aluminum threads give it up in the head....
