    Timin' Belt Covers.

    Well, the time challenge has been met, successfully! Almost three decades and a half of continous ownership of my Subie, all of them running with this carbureted EA82 which is the original engine, having almost everything original inside it; and these last ten years, the engine has been running with the same timin' belts, coverless! However, my beloved "BumbleBeast" has not reached the 100,000 kilometers' goal with the same timin' belts, yet; thus means that the mileage challenge hasn't been met... So, I decided that I'll let this old timin' kit to stay there, working for few months more; I'll report here as soon as anything new happens regarding the subject; meanwhile I must better find a brand new timin' kit... Kind greetings from Honduras.
  3. I don't know if Photobuckshít is still working... thus means that I don't know if the following Photo will display here, but let me try: If the Photo doesn't display... it shows an Honduran Subaru impreza coupé used as cargo hauler, and the original Photo is displayed on this website: ~► http://www.rightfootdown.com/cars/thoughts/the-cars-of-honduras/ Kind Greetings from Honduras.

    Fitting 14 in wheels

    Here in Honduras I saw a grey Loyale wagon with old 80's, Datsun's six lug 14" wheels; and despite that they do fit good with proper offset, they doesn't look nice on the Subie, they make the subie to look older; but that is my very own humble opinion. I would like to share photos here, but I don´t know if the pathetic Photobucket site would let me... Kind Regards.

    Springs: moog 854 or 856?

    In my case, the coil springs that I used, were obtained at a local Junk Yard's tempo, so they where not new and that straighten things up for me, because I didn't need to cut anything nor had them too stiff as new coil springs are. Any news on this ride? Kind Regards.

    Celebrating the first 40 Years of my "other" Car ;)

    Appreciated Fellows,My 1969 Mercury Comet is running strong like new, despite that this month it reaches its Fifty (50) Birthday, and it has been on my family since new, so we have half century of continuos ownership. The only thing that it might need to be replaced soon, is the Fuse Box, which is the only corroded part on it. it is sad but seems like a lot of great conversations regarding our good ol' cars, which are fading away on social networks such like facebook, and I wrote here with the aim of obtaining info regarding a suitable Fuse Box... nada.I need to find a new Fuse Box, or even better: a new fuse Box that uses modern fuses, because the one on my Mercury is corroded, and uses mini tubular glass fuses, which aren't available here...Please, let me know any ideas or experience you have regarding the fuse Box subject.Kind Regards.

    Dear Friend, Please do not hesitate to let me know if I made a mistake and if I should hurry to change the gas + oil on the A/C system, to avoid future costly repairs; I am not an expert on A/C systems... In fact, I'm not expert on mechanics (you can read further, ~► here); I am self taught even on english language, so please let me Know if I'm wrong. Now, answering your question: The A/C system has been working since I repaired it, in the last week of the month of may, and my wife, who really can't live without the air conditioning, says it is performing perfectly. The only difference that we've noticed on the overall vehicle's behaviour, is that the A/C tend to rob a little more Horsepower from the engine, than before; like if it is now around 25% more heavy to spin... Besides that, it still is working flawlessly, blowing icy cold air without leaks. By the way, Ester and Daphne, are women names... interesting that they're used to name compressor lubricants. Kind Regards.

    I'm not expert on mechanics, I graduated from the university in year 2000 but as Lawyer... however my favourite activity / Hobby is mechanics; I started with my father, doing basic maintenance on our family cars since young child, decades ago; and besides of basic maintenance, and repairs, now I love to improve cars as long as I can, with low budget; I don't build pocket rockets nor have much money; but I always try to learn and to dare to do something new, hoping to not screw things up... with the kind help of God, and the awesome fellowship on these automotive forums, I've went farther than I ever thought, even in my wildest dreams... so Thank you for your amazing help and friendship, you're awesome. I've not posted very much about my beloved Subaru " BumbleBeast " because it is simply working wonderfully, without a single fail nor repair since years ago, which is Amazing; however, I'll update this thread as necessary. Kind Regards.

    Firstly: Sorry for the delay in answering... Yes... the Compressor states that it must use Daphne Hermetic Oil number FD46GX and according to the internet searching I did, it is considered as a "High Viscosity" Lubricant, while having a Nº 46 viscosity. Then I also searched about the Ester oil viscosity number, and I found that it is considered a "Medium Viscosity" Lubricant, while having a Nº 100 viscosity. This is pretty confusing, especially for a newbie on A/C systems like me; and sounded like I just screwed up my compressor by going twice as thick on lubricant, until I read even more information, and I found this website: ~► Compressor oils [SubsTech] on which I found information regarding the subject, written in easy understanding words; and I found two things, one is that Ester oil is semi-synthetic, while Daphne is Mineral; the other thing I found, is that there is an ISO viscosity index that measures low temperature and high temperature flowing behaviour of the lubricant; which you can see in the following comparison tables: Daphne 46 Ester 100 And if you read them, the Viscosity index of the Daphne oil, ends being ~ 108, while the viscosity index of the Ester oil, ends being ~ 110 so, the difference is minimum, as far as I understand. I hope I didn't screw things by using Ester oil instead of Daphne oil... Kind Regards.
