OK.
This pic prompts a question.
See that little plug to the left (looking at it) of the crank pulley?
What is that?!
My engine has it too but it's not plugged into anything.

Something Subaru put there as an evil plan to confuse me 20 some odd years later? :lol:

[QUOTE]

How'ed you weld that? Looked like a casting to me and I know that welidng stuff like that wrong can just lead to a breakage.

Mine had wear as well. I was afraid to mess with it and the welder though. So I left it alone.

I just used the wire feed..you could just JB weld it and grind it down...
The divits were so small ..hardly any added meterial...spot weld....There is not much too worry about really..I've welded cast many times with no issues..if it's small and not a huge peice no biggie..

Yeah the spare with my set of 505's was just slightly narrower than the rest but could still take the same tire as the others.
(But I do not have THAT spare as I alreay had a fullsize 14" spare for mine, and someone slse needed it more)

I got two pugs sandblasted/primed for black paint
Dropped off two wheels to tire shop for a set of cooper weathermaster snows for now....I can't choke on swampers yet...

CB swap from my outback in progress...I ran the antenna wire around the hatch and in thru one of the lic. plate lamp holes..nice and clean...

I also scored a set of 53" x-bars w/ barcraffters raingutter mounts/w locks for $60...(the thule mounts are $140 + another $50 for x-bars )so my outback overhead rack with lightforce rmdl 170s, hella ff75(backup lamps) will bolt right on...just have to wire it in..
