Finally got the Subaru to a point where I'm not worried to drive it to the gas station, much less deliver in it. so it's time to sink my extra income into the Truck for awhile. so, this arrived on Monday:
complete Engine rebuild kit, including timing set with the engnbldr metal chain guide (factory uses solid plastic ones.....they have a tendency to fail), all bearings, seals, new oil pump, new pistons
non-turbo pistons at that, since the seals on my turbo are blown, and rebuild kits for those are much more expensive and harder to find, I decided to drop N/A pistons in it, to return the compression to normal, and ditch the turbo entirely
and something about the 4-cyl kind of needing the turbo to be able to move the weight of a 4Runner with an auto trans and offroad gear (not to mention oversized tires). so, I spent a little extra and got this:
it's not on the top of the project list, but now I've got the parts. I moved the truck so I can still easily park 4 cars (my 3 + the girlfriend doesn't have to park on the street....) on my slab, and I can still get in front of the truck to work on the engine.
