Some Dumb rump roast Driver was passing me in a Curve, when an incoming car appeared, so he steered his car against mine and in order to avoid an accident, I had to pull fast to the Right side of the Road... where a monstrous pothole was waiting for my Subie's Tire...

I had to change tires on that side of the Road... but the Tire has two cuts, of around 1 inch long each, in the Green Marked Areas ... :banghead: ...

I Hate Dumb-rump roast Drivers...

Attempted to repair the clock in the '88 Wagon. No joy, burnt resistor. Pulled clock from the '92 Wagon's dash, same resistor was burnt. Bummer.

When I dropped the glovebox down on the '88 to get to the connector for the clock, I found a receipt for payment of repairs. It was laying on top of the A/C housing.
No mention of work done, but total was $549.20, paid to Luttrell's Auto Center in Walla Walla, Wa., paid on 12/14/06.

Thought that was pretty cool.


this explains the lack of scary rust (hopefully)

Yes, seems like the Tire took the Worst part, the 15" alloys seems to be alright.

Kind Regards.

Completed coolant flush with Subaru LL coolant. Used 4 gallons of DIW to flush out 4 separate times. Next time will use something like this:
http://www.amazon.co...ds=coolant lift
You get slightly over a gallon out when draining the radiator, but it gets old - adding DIW, getting the engine hot, draining and repeating etc. With the airlift device it would have been much simpler/faster. Also added a bottle of Subaru (Holts) conditioner. It is a brown, rust colored suspension with off white colored flakes. If the Subaru engineers say it is OK, will not argue. Replaced cabin air filter; now to do a brake fluid flush, and possibly replace pads.


Complete brake fluid flush, balanced wheels (what a difference) and adjusted parking brakes and lever stroke. The PB was totally useless prior to the adjustment.

That's actually pretty cool! I'd have to see it in person though. :D

Replaced the PCV valve yesterday. Old one was gunked up pretty bad. It's been a while since I've done these things, but I've added fender mirrors, changed the seats (to GL seats), removed my "off road" lights, added fog lights, restored my bumpers back to black, oil change, new oil filter, new brake fluid, and more windshield washer fluid.

Hope to change out the fuel filter soon. Bought a genuine one from a Subaru dealership, and it doesn't fit properly. Hopefully I'll be able to get the $35 I spent on it back.

Oh how I have missed that EA81 noise.
Which reminds me, I need to start the BRAT fairly soon. Dig the snow off of it and fire it up just for the sake of scaring the hell out of the neighbors.
Anyway, Idasho, you reminded me I need to keep my EA81's.
There is no replacement for the visceral feel of an EA81.

PS: Haven't been able to do a whole lot to the cars as of late, but that will change soon enough...

Cut the damned frayed cable for the automatic seatbelt on 1993 Legacy...shoulder seat belt stuck in the track, with the belt perfectly positioned to choke me...it is now a perfectly good manual seatbelt! Horrible design.

Made my own window washing fluid, which works just fine for winter. isopropyl alcohol, liquid castille soap and water. Much more friendly to environment.
