The timing got straightened out and she passed the state inspection! Legal for another year!

Pardon my frustration but we have replaced so far due to failure:

battery cable
right front wheel bearings - twice
all axles front right - twice
front calipers
brake pads
gas tank was pulled for a leak
tailgate pull
distributor cap
plug wires
vacuum lines
ball joints
interior parts
badges (need to put on)
rims and tires

The sunroof leaks but that will wait a little bit.

Badges? Badges? We don't need no steenkin' badges!

Sorry... I couldn't help myself.

Seriously, though. You need the badges to pass inspection? I'm glad we only have an emissions test here.

Thats great that the engine is listed as one part.
Congrats on passing inspection, I have yet to accomplish that.

Thanks everyone! It was a great feeling! It was only possible with the solid information, encouragement and parts acquired from members here on the board.

I actually got to the show last night. We took the Brat and the Baja... we were the only Subies there :(

Premium gas is $2.87... the Baja will have a little nap. So add another vintage Subie to the daily driver list, I drove her to work today and I'll be driving it until the salt trucks roll. (or when it's a zillion degrees outside... no A/C).

Now we can concentrate on getting the '50 Ford F-1 tweaked out. She'll be registered tomorrow.

Then the '86 will get her turn... she's stripped and primed.
