Got this thing running good again!
 
Turned out either the fuel filter or the vapor separator was clogged, because I replaced both of those today and now it is running like new!
 
Quick vid.

Glad its much better now !

 

You doing any local meets this year?

 

Don't forget - Caffeine and Carbs down in New Canaan - your Brat will be appreciated - just park in a side lot along the main run like I do. Last three of the year Sept , Oct, and Nov.

 

Hoping you or some other vintage Subaru makes it there.

 

Meanwhile , I'll try to get up to auqaberry too. Right now my exhaust is LOUD !!!!! :)

Had some fun at work today with the BRAT.
 
 
The trailer's battery died, so we tried jumping it but just a bunch of clicking. Oh well, that is what happens when you don't run the unit for 4 months and expect it to work perfectly...
 
Jackasses...

That looks like a Bozzuto's trailer. Careful what you say. Lol

Any meets up that way?

I'm down for embarassing myself with loud exhaust.

Who said loud exhaust is embarrassing? ;)

Loud pipes save lives man!

Well, in my case it didn't save the car, but damn that thing still sounds good...

PS: True Dual Exhaust FTW

I have just read this entire thread.  The OP has done a tremendous job with his Brat.  I compliment him on his perserverance and his troubleshooting skills.  I also want to compliment his parents for having brought him to this point.  It didn't happen by accident.

 

Yes, there is something about Subaru's in general and Brats in particular that can become addictive.  I purchased my original Brat about 10 years ago and about a year later was able to secure my present Brat.  It is bone stock. 

 

Keep up the good work and keep working on the rust and other little things as time and money allow.  I have copied a few posts from this thread and saved them for my future reference.  Mine serves as a tow vehicle behind my motorhome and as a fun casual driver.  You have reindpired me to do a few more things to mine.

 

I have subscribed to this thread so keep it coming.

Drive on up to new England this fall. We'll treat you to a coffee at Dunkin Donuts. ;)

I really want to see an old brat behind a motorhome.

Hang in there!  I should be in your area some time late spring, early summer next year and I will make it happen.  By the way, I have seen another person out of WA who had a Brat as a tow vehicle so I am not the only one.  In the attached picture I am in the coach on the left passing the other coach.

Used to very popular to tow a brat or Gen I 4wd wagon.

But that's decades ago up here.

See you in the spring. Truck stop Milford. Exit 40. I'll be the guy in the old Subaru. :)

Add some chrome rings and new lugs then you'll be set. Here's a set that I restored.


What chrome rings work on these? Any 13" chrome rings? Sorry to bump an old thread
