    '84 Brat
  1. greg454

    Baja vs. Brat

    They did in fact have seat belts in the back for the jump seats! I still have them in my '84.
  2. My hill holder was also leaking. I removed the cable years ago and it has not leaked another drop.

    BRAT decals

    I bought a set of Gen 2 from ebay about 5-6 years ago. I got a full set but only used the "BRAT" stripe over the cab for a little more minimalist look. If I remember correctly I had to pay a little extra because I wanted gun metal gray instead of one of the offered colors. Mine still look great to this day but my brat has always been garaged so that really helps. I would definitely recommend them. Luckily I had a friend that used to apply decals to company vehicles help me as getting them to fit correctly over the cab does take some skill!
  6. I don't know if this helps or not ..EA81, 1984 Brat, 1800, solid lifters,.. high altitude kit,...
  7. Ha.. Mine made it in 4 different times!!
  8. I did mine in black with chrome trim rings. I think it turned out nice.
  9. My hill holder would leak brake fluid when the cable actuated it. So I disconnected its cable from the clutch fork and have been running that way ever since with no problems. It doesn't leak a drop this way and if I'm on a really bad hill I can always use the hand operated emergency brake, although driving a clutch all my life that really isn't necessary. Also, most drum brakes (I assume subarus are the same) usually have a short shoe and a long shoe. Make sure the short shoe is towards the front and the long shoe is towards the rear of the drum or you may get the kind of symptoms you describe.

    Subaru Brat ea82 turbo bastard project

    It brought $4950 on EBay. Someone will have fun with that thing
  12. I had a problem initially trying to pass Colorado smog test with my '84 brat. They insisted it was supposed to have a computer and o2 sensor and wouldnt listen to me when I told them it never had a ECM. After about an hour with the manager he figured out if he looked it up in his computer as a Subaru truck (he was looking under car) it then showed correctly on his computer and it passed with flying colors. Next time I went back I told them to look it up as a truck and they found it just fine.
  13. I clean up the axle and give the surface a thin layer of oil. It seems to help it pull through the bearings easier.
  14. It looks like it must of been almost 5 years ago as my plates expire in August of this year. I live in Arapahoe county if it makes a difference? It never needs another emission test again as long as I own it. I have two cars with collector plates!
