Why did I have to stick it out 3/4"?
Posted 22 March 2004 - 03:01 PM
in order for your stereo to not stick out, you have to make or buy an aftermarket faceplate for it like this

I used my mill to enlarge the opening on the original faceplate so I could get it over the radio. Right now it sticks out 3/4", I put black electrical tape over the sheet metal to blend it in.
Can I use someones face plate as a mold? I can make a copy out of fiberglass and give it back.

First gas-up since I swapped trannys. Mostly commuting miles. Put in 12.9g drove 345miles, almost 27MPG? Sound about right?
Cecked oil again and again it dropped. Looked real close last night and there is oil coming from the oil pan drain, will replace that next oil change. However, I still have oil leaking out the front cover. I changed the ruined front oil seal when I pulled it. What else gives? Is it possible to change the cam seals and oil pump seals without pulling that engine?
I only did the front and rear crank seals and the valve cover seals. I read some old post that I should have also replaced a couple of cam seals and oil pump seals? I don't have a manual yet for this model, so I've got no illustration to go off of. Also, I was on-line at parts express, what are the right part numbers and quantities I need? I'm not in a rush, but would like to have all the RIGHT parts when I decide to dive after this problem.

He has ultralight planes with Sub engines, so his PDF's only have engine and wiring information, but they've been a godsend for me. He has ones for your Legacy as well!

I think I'm just going to head to NAPA for the parts (oil seals&gaskets) so i can return them if I get the wrong ones.
