my newest problem is last night I was driving and my turn signals stopped working. After searching the forum for a solution I checked My hazards and they work, Fuses are fine and wiring looks to be in decent shape. So I am stumped. Any ideas?

But on the bright side I got my turn signals working. It turned out to be a bad flasher and the one I bought from Auto zone was bad as well right out of the box. Put a little bit nicer of one in and they work!

I have a chiltons repair manual a chlymer repair manual and I found a .pdf of the "how to keep your subaru alive" online somewhere that is downloaded to my phone and iTunes. I am having a blast learning on this rig and have learned probably 100% more about cars than I knew before purchasing it. Glad to have stumbled upon this site as we all know there is a lot of great information to be had and shared here.

... and got a solid hose for the brake booster as the old one was 2 hoses attached together.
The original hose would have been in two pieces as there should be a 'check valve' in the middle. I think it is a one way valve....
Great that the brakes are working better!

i have had people tell me do it both ways. i think the big difference is with the spray you use more elbow grease and it doesn't go every where in the carb you might want. i haven't used the dip but next time i do it i will see how well it works. i have got some pretty good results with the can though you just have to use paper towels/junker towels and q-tips to give it a good cleaning. also use a air compessor with a blow gun to blow stuff out of ports and small stuff.
So last night I got it all taken apart but got held up because I need to get the cleaner. What would you recommend? I have the b12 carb spray but was told I should probably soak it in Berryman/Chem Dip carb and parts cleaner. Thoughts?
