    Phase II Frankenmotor - doable?

    I have put a phase 2 ej25 into a 96 LOB 5mt 22e. no IAC to. But i have enough parts ro do it the other way and put a phase 1 manifold in a phase 2 car. haven't done it tho. in theory it should work.

    Transmission pop out

    If your moist is dry you should investigate the shifter linkage as it is adjustable. It may need a re-moisting to keep it moisted up. good luck with your moist
  3. Swapping knuckles will save you the labor and special tools. But you will be disassembling all the trailing links and lateral link and will have to swap the parking cable with it.

    My '83 GL Coupe - Hardtop SSS

    I would be using bolts with yellow plating if i were chosing them. Like the plating on the factory bolts if it didnt rust off already

    subaru gl

    Id does bolt up perfectly but you will have to swap all the associated rear suspension, driveshaft, differential. You will have to fashion a mount for the carrier bearing. You will have to drill and use thru bolts for the rear diff hanger, although the holes are stamped in the body for yoou to drill out.
  6. you might try cross-reference with weird isuzu from the era.
  7. The turbo DIT FB engines are indeed chain drive (15 wrx, forester xt) but the STI still uses an EJ belt driven

    battery powered impacts

    I have milwaukee 18 v cordless hex drive and 1/2" drive impacts. the hex drive will sing 1,000 3 inch deck screws on the same charge. I use it in the shop essentially as an air ratchet for everything from alternator to battery to intake and exhaust manifolds. Or at least to run bolts in and out after breaking them loose or torquing them up by hand. The battery will last almost a month with mixed use. I use it more than a hand ratchet and i only use the air ratchet where this tool wont fit. the 1/2" driver is the prior model. the battery can last thru about 6 consecutive tire rotations. I was able to take the wheels off on a 1 ton ford van with it. It works to break loose and torque up axle nuts. When compared to the air tool, it takes a little more hammering to torque up with torque sticks but it torques up just fine when checked with a torque wrench. At home its a must have now that i have been working in a professional shop environment
  9. belt timing is not set to tdc. but rather with all 4 pistons in the center of their stroke to avoid collision of the valves as you rotate the cam.
  10. I run 0w40 mobil in my ej22's because synthetic and 0w40 in place of 10w40 for both high load and easy cold flow in winter. for the 2011 forester the specs call for 0w20 and 7500 mi intervals. for 2015 they shortened it to 6000 mi around consumption issues. Personally i would not recommend and lucas additives to such light oil in new engine. perhaps consider a 0w30. in my opinion, extended drain intervals are ok with high quality oil, just dont forget to check and top off between, With new subarus, and for warranty, it is acceptable to use up tp 1 qt in 1200 mi with the 0w20 engines. also, in my opinion, letting the oil get below the add mark wrecks the oil more than extended drain intervals.

    1983 sleeper GL?

    I had an 83 fwd with carter weber.
  12. I have encountered this problem on a 96 legacy sedan where I ran a jumper between the headlamp fuse and the tail fuse thrust a switch. Advise your technician to troubleshoot a the headlight switch/ park lamp switch and it's grounding at the steering column . He should be able to call up a schematic on the subaru tech info system on the computer networks. Good luck
