Now, lessee, hitch gets here Monday (hidden hitch class II), get the $300 no-floor 4x8 Tractor Supply trailer Monday or Tuesday, now all I have to do is find a home for my '92 ranger 4WD.

Found out the timing cover had come off to replace the oil pan from a minor accident a year ago. (Had red RTV around the cover).

They had hit a tree, new bumper and new oil pan, no damage to radiator/support etc.

Well, that was actually good news because no one could figure out if/why the timing cover had been off!

This thing is great. Cruises 80 effortlessly, will hold 70 up fair hills without a downshift, and I can't wait for some snow.

Except for the small ding in the fender, there is not one thing that doesn't look showroom on this thing. I mean, its minty.

Bought it from the dealer where it had been sold, and always serviced.

55Kmiles.

Those things are awsome. I have a few customers that just drive them hard with well over 200,000 miles and neglect them sooooooo bad and they just keep running.

I'm sure the fact it holds 6 bloody quarts of oil helps!

The funny thing is both of them that are over the 260K mark are still on the original plugs and they run so smooth.:confused:

Great to hear that people are having good luck with them. I just bought an 02 LL Bean and relly like it.

Did they ever change the timing chain on those higher mileage H6's?

On this board, 120,000 miles was mentioned as the reasonable chain service limit.

The subaru literature has no interval.

So, pipe up those with 1st hand experience!
