What?  Another Oregon Coast member.  Most everyone out here wants/drives Toyota PU.

Congrats on selling the Hondas and buying the Subie.  You won't regret it.

Shorted out? That could mean just about anything. The 86's tend to fry the hot alternator lead that screws onto the alternator. The lead gets hot, brittle, melts the covering and the wire breaks. The capacitor that is attached to and located at the coil, also goes bad and may keep the engine from starting. The black wire in the main bus fuse box, can also break with over 300,000 miles. That will keep it from starting. The distributors are problematic and make either suddenly cease to function, or the engine may get jerky at low speeds and temporarily cut out while driving.
