  1. Ok here’s a fight I’ll pay to watch. Rust vs Amsoil HD metal protectant. To me Vermont is the place to hold this event. Will accept NH or Maine as well.
  2. Pretty sure I have one but I’ll need a little time to be able to dig it out. A couple guys have the old stock like I used to and may have one new. Check FB ? I think Carl comes by here. He might see this.
  3. Sounds good to me. And you folks know what I push around. Nothing newer than my wife’s 2006 which is the last era of Subarus I’m going to bother turning a wrench on. The more new , the more they suck. But Rick , it’s CT and a different world here. Maybe a few 80’s GM products on the road here but super rare at this point. I really can’t think of one around here. Up in the valley I’m sure there’s a few. He’d need to transport one from a dry zone. You have lots of cars coming and going out there. Hook him up! Not much of a military vehicle presence here anymore. Especially that rig you have. Our city used to keep some large ex military amphibious vehicles but haven’t seen them for a while. But they did score a new something or other that looks like a complete beast and militarized. Jim , you think something like that works for you ? Love my 94 !! Good luck with this one.
  4. Learn to be patient and let the other folks leave before starting the car. But if you moved to my town you’d fit right in. Maybe need noisy exhaust. Belt squeal. Clicking axles. But we’ll welcome you as you are. Now see if your town will welcome me. (Roaring laughter) Fresh oil pump reseal , rev the engine to get all the lifters pumped up and you’re good. See ya at the ShopRite where we’ll both try to sneak away from the parking lot.
  5. Not long ago I did a Legacy to Legacy swap with the same situation I think. Its M20 x 1.5 I bought the drill and tap and tapped in the EGR line and also had the PCV conversion. Rick (GD here) confirmed all and directed me somewhat so there’s your base. Mind you now I just skimmed through and did a little ASSuming. Just found my old thread and posted below. Good luck.
  6. Long gone from Bridgeport. Even if it weren’t from my home town I’d say the Bpt. Miller stands above the rest with the J head. How many small time operators made dreams come true. Including my uncle who’s NASA parts he made in the 60’s and 70’s are still in space.
  7. You folks find those weights commonly? 5w40 and 15w50 ? Maybe my aging eyes again but I don’t see those here in CT. I’d definitely go for the 5w40 since I’m pretty close already in the summer. Haven’t met Thosl yet but I’m just up the road a bit. Same temps. Just more corruption in my town.
  8. Let’s get to the most important matter here. Did you shred the waves in Kauai ? We just had one come through that had work done at a somewhat reputable shop and the water pump practically fell off. I mean loose bolts. Paper gasket. Cowabunga Larry !
  9. Prayers sent. Hey you know how I normally offer help ... Jim the more I work on these newer generation Subarus the more I dislike Subaru. Have suffered the same with our 2006 , need that extention through the arm etc , sure just like we always did right ? On the ground like you. No impact. But I’d get the full schnitzel on the impact extensions. Twist n Shout is not a good song to play during those moments. Let me know if you need comedic assistance in the garage.
  10. Change the pump and give it back to your wife like the local shop would. After a test drive with multiple shut down/restarts of course. Have AAA or equivalent? I sure do. All we drive are older Subarus. Stuff happens. Same as you my mind goes to that relay when these things happen and it seems intermittent, but it’s likely not that relay. History tells us so. Guessing you’ll be in work soon. Let us know how it went and how the coffee is today. Thanks.
  11. Aww Todd now you’re faced with a huge dilemma. It’s not wether to sell or build your dream. Its where are we going to celebrate this sale. Haha Enjoy !
  12. Note to Jim: I’m done with Perkins. Don’t even think I’ll use the website and won’t mention it now in protest. John and Anthony were a pleasure to deal with. Days gone by. Good luck with your parts acquisitions going forward.
  13. Tells me it’s a keeper. Your sentiments and their turning your baby into a parts nightmare bothering you. Just consider it one of your classics. Or put it on BAT and THEN let the NAUSIAC community know about it.
  14. https://phys.org/news/2022-10-smartphone-global-vegetation.html An example of what you may often find these days on physical.org Be sure to read that last paragraph.
  15. You knew this already but I’m here to remind you. Twist that hose when it hits the baffle. Make that hose end dance around the field until she falls into the well. And I’m still local if you need me.
  16. Recently received their reply. They’ll do a batch of 40 and the cost is right around $66 each maybe a buck less. That’s like $2600 plus for the order. Wouldn’t kill me or maybe the next guy but I’d like to see a good show of hands and even deposits before confirming. I have not replied yet. Also want to ask if there’s other parties also purchasing a lot. And if PRP is going also retain a lot. If we’re the only folks getting just 40 I’d be surprised. They’re not short of rubber in Thailand or help. Guessing they’re having around 100 or so produced and maybe splitting the lot , stocking some. But who knows. 40 seems like a weird number to be a solo batch.
  17. Ok don’t all applaud too loudly now but the engine is finally at my storage hole just a nickel short of a buck with being on the stand and beginning the work. Have to dig up some long bolts to secure the block/bell housing to the stand. But this party starts really soon.
  18. Just shipped the fuel tank from my 1979 4WD wagon to Moyer in PA for their patented RENU process. For those in the future wishing to do the same my tank shipped wrapped in cardboard - not a proper rectangular box but wrapped and well taped. Overall dimensions were right around 34” x 24” x 8” and weighed 27/28lbs. FedEx handled this one after my boycotting them for a few years. Their charge to me was $56.34 today 10/18/2022 from Stratford CT to Greensburg PA Will add a review when it returns whichshould be in only 2-3 weeks they told me. Moyer - http://www.gas-tank.com
  19. Off to Moyer Fuel Tank RENU if Pennsylvania. For those in the future wishing to do the same my tank shipped wrapped in cardboard - not a proper rectangular box but wrapped and well taped.

  20. I had to play the role of one of the gorillas this morning. I’m ok ! So at this moment my back is doing pretty well. Don’t feel bad if you need me to help out. I know it’s a temporary deal. Just not this afternoon, going to see my dad and watch the ballgame.
  21. You have my number if you need me to run over. Hope you get much better very soon. I’m bringing home two gorillas from work to save my back. They’re going to lift the old 1600 out and put it in the back of my 94. Good luck!
  22. It’s too sad to even dwell on for folks my age. Back around 1977 or so I went to a local corporate headquarters and saw reel to reel computer servers and the first internet. Folks there were communicating with other locations of the same business. It was clean. Only business and maybe a little social content. Example:It was SuperBlow - super bowl- time and the Minnesota Vikings were playing the Pittsburg Steelers. And I was, through the adult working there able to “speak” with the folks at the company’s PA location - they of course wanted the Steelers to win. It was all just green letters in a black screen. But nobody was disrespectful and nobody tried to sell anything to anyone. There’s too much to talk about. And everything Rick mentioned I’d also thought about. It goes well beyond what Rick mentioned as well. The phones are invasive, detective, and capable of things that’ll scare the crap out of us. Hence my opening line above. Read the input on sites like phys.org and read between the lines. Great scientific input there from actual developers, research scientists, etc etc But also don’t forget to let your kind wonder - NOT wander when you see it termed “may help one day”, “may be the answer to...” , and similar. You can often easily see the real reasons such products or systems are developed and it ain’t for our well being kids. Best of luck to all going forward. ok let’s get back to our cars. Don’t need more anchors tied to my heart.
