  1. https://www.ultimatesubaru.org/forum/topic/95237-how-do-i-mimic-a-vss/ Post a pic of back of your 88 GL cluster so we helpers can compare them.
  2. Notice the other hole in back of speedo with one angled & one straight barrier around it? Maybe Zippy needs to look for a threaded hole connection in there - then bridge that to the nearest screw on pc board with some 16-22 ga wire. Then ohmmeter test for VSS by slowly spinning the speedo again .
  3. How about rolling a piece of pipe or round bar stock through the gap again & again until you have the clearance you want? Increase size of round stock in increments of course.
  4. I have an OEM axle here with new outer CVJ that may fit your DL. New boots & grease on inner joint. Look it over to see if its a match. PM me if interested. $25 plus shipping. Grinding while driving could be brakes too, especially if wheel brgs have been failing for awhile or hub splines are loose on CVJ. Causes pads to wear unevenly. Look at your front tire to see if it looks tipped in at the top vs the other side. Jack up the car, grab tire then check for play. 6 & 12 o'clock then 3 & 9 o'clock.
  5. Valve height must be checked whenever a valve grind is done. That margin of stem height ensures lifters are operating within internal limits. Sink the valves too deep & you must replace valve seats. Grind too much off the faces & then must replace the valves. If cams were reground to smaller base circle then the stem heights could be more to compensate. Theoretically, by rocker ratio times difference in base circles radii - stock to reground. Probably could be checked in the car with a straightedge & calipers as long as you already knew dimension from gasket surface to spring pockets. Just do it right the first time. YMMV.
  6. IF the valve stem heights are too high hydraulic lifters won't have any travel left to cushion cam profile. This could lead to valves not seating 100% of the time & warping the valve heads. https://www.ultimatesubaru.org/forum/topic/131629-ea82-valve-train-question/?tab=comments#comment-1121659 Have machine shop double check your valve stem heights to be sure. Machine shop that did my work never had to replace or ream guides but did overlook valve stem heights. See attachments for specs.

    You know I'm taking notes Dan. Already have rear cradle, R180 diff & 2005 sti axles plus more. http://www.swagoffroad.com/SWAG-Plasma-Circle-Cutter-_p_45.html

    4EAT reverse direction for Vanagon

    Well then, wouldn't it be wiser to invest in a heavier duty auto transaxle such as Porche 911 Cayenne or a HD race 4 spd manual transaxle? https://ranchotransaxles.com/pbs-transaxles/ Scroll down - they manufacture transaxles with Subaru bellhousings. Monies invested in special purpose R&P for 4EAT could be spent on HD race transaxle already available. As has already been stated in this thread, reverse driving a FWD R&P doesn't last.

    https://www.kennedyeng.com/subaru-vanagon Scroll down to automatic adapters. Anything wrong with auto trans as supplied for newer VW vehicle(s) to also transplant in your bus?
  12. 4th picture in this listing for Dorman 'tailshaft': https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rear-Driveshaft-Assembly-for-Subaru-1994-85-Dorman-936-934-STD-Trans/401257355418?epid=203116132&hash=item5d6ccd589a:g:PnsAAOSwFMdaU~6j https://www.dormanproducts.com/p-68555-936-934.aspx?year=1987&make=Subaru&model=GL&parttype=Drive%20Shaft&origin=YMM
  13. Yeah, it is one piece but if a one piece center brg isn't readily available then perhaps you could take yours apart. Then replace the rubber 'doughnut' & brg with something similar from a Nissan product for instance. Then tack the steel 'girdle' back together - slowly - small tack weld at a time so as not to cook the rubber doughnut. My plate is full with putting a 73 Chevy K20 truck back together for tow vehicle to move. IF you find a genuine one, let us know where.
  14. Ball bearing, shielded that is, could be had if you take apart tailshaft first. Just match up to 620x brg. But without the rubber doughnut to know shape, OD, thickness etc in hand to compare to some other make, I don't know. Looked at some late 70's early 80's Nissan center supports which are either 30 mm or 35 mm ID. Subaru center brg has that steel mount girdle around it. You'd have to drill out all the spot welds, split it apart to dissect it.
  15. Yeah, fuel recovery system operates at a partial vacuum IIRC. Depends on fuel purge solenoid valve to either vent positive pressure to charcan or vent fumes to intake with vac. That plastic bladder is for fumes to condense then drain back to tank. Otherwise liquid fuel could get sucked into intake. Emission vacuum hose stock should do you well. Don't forget the little lines connected at tank.
