A few questions.
Posted 10 February 2005 - 08:00 PM
Second. Is there anywhere under the hood of an EA81 subie that can supply 5 to 7 volts. I want to set up an on board bumper camera, but the one i have needs like 6volts. Do i need to just get a regulator, or is there somewhere with this voltage?
Third. The left rocker cover is making a ticking noise. I think its the tappets. Can i fix this while the engine is in the car?
Fourth. When I put the engine back in after changing the thrust bearing I got a water pipe leak on the bottom of the radiator. I didn't think it was leaking much, but it on a short trip down to the shops and back the temp got a little higher then I would like, almost at the red :-\. Then about 10senconds before i stoped in my drive way a rattle started, but only under power. (It doesn't do it now) I found that the radiator had almost emptied!! and I was running on like a litter of coolant!! Will the engine be fine? What might of happened? Did I just shorten its life by a few KM's? I feel really bad, I'm gonna fix probs when I find them in future.
Thanks for any help.

Hopefully you haven't hurt the engine with the low coolant situation. I would not drive it again until this is fixed.

What about the other questions?

Question 3: Yes, you can adjust the tappets with the engine in the car.
