USMB post Impreza,
Just bought, 95 Impreza L AWD
VIN JF1GF2351SG815873
Compression test:
Method 1. My Chilton’s says to pull plugs, and un-plug (each injector, cold start valve and high tension lead of coil.)
Can’t find any reference or photo of cold start valve, where is at?

Method 2. Why can’t I just put an external starter switch, the kind used to bump the starter when setting timing, pull plugs, and leave ignition off and run compression test that way? Will I endanger any electronics? If this is safe to do how do I hook up the external starter switch, to which terminals on starter, it’s a little difficult to see down there.

LF outer cv boot:
Will the axles from my ’93 Legacy FWD fit the Impreza front axles? They both seemed to be working OK; I just replaced them because the outer boots failed. If they will fit the Impreza, I can just rebuild them. Any suggestions?

AC not cooling:
A/C added 12oz 134a/w leak detector after tightening all connections, appeared to be a little oil around high side outlet of evaporator, 28/190 on gauges, seems to be working OK now.

Electronic mirrors don’t work:
I checked fuse panel under hood on left side, all fuses good.
Where do I check next?

For the compression test, just pull the plugs, disconnect the connector going to the coil pack, and open the throttle all the way while cranking.

The cv axles from the Legacy should be interchangable.
