    oil pan gasket replacement.

    you tube and this forum are outstanding resources, they've saved my bacon. SJ
  2. there is a "normal" ticking sound while it's running. the sound that comes from an old chevy motor when the lifters need adjustment. nothing that caused me much concern. SJ this might be the case with the 3 that wont move at all. they are not all gunked up. the inside of the motor and the lifters are rather clean really, vanish colored. so im gonna try to "clean" them. SJ Thanks TomRhere, i'll try this method. SJ

    oil pan gasket replacement.

    Jman 1991 i have a 1992 Loyale and replaced the oil pan gasket by the method suggested above it went well but i still had an oil leak. so i thought I messed up the install. It turns out I had an oil leak from the head seals, it took me a bit to finally see it leaking from there on the right side (DAMN IT! ) so I pulled the engine I'm in the middle of resealing the whole motor right now. Best to you. SJ
  4. yah, i have the engine tore down resealing it and now am into reassembly and find these lash adjuster stuck or weak? i also read from another post where the term "lash adjuster was collapsed" and not sure what that means??? Is this the state 5 of mine are in????? is that the term used when the procedure to fill them with oil and pressurize them is not possible. ??? SJ
  5. I got this following quote from another post and wonder about a procedure to clean, restore, rebuild, bleed, pump these lash adjusters in the EA82 engine??? " bled and pumped up all 8 HLAs, used compressed air and brake cleaner to get every piece clean as a whistle, oiled everything up, put it back in the engine, and the second the engine fired, it purred like a kitten. drove it 200 miles home from my dads place, still sounds great. " Thank you I appreciste any insight and help SJ
  6. Correct. as written in the manual and checked on the bench with the adjusters out of the engine, of the 8, there are 5 that can be depressed and 3 that are solid and can not be depressed. are these three shot and need to be replaced?? or can the other 5 be firmed up by filling with oil as explained in the manual? I apologize but I don't have a clue?? SJ

    retorquing of head bolt in an EA82?

    Thank you Dave T I've installed the perma torque gasket
  8. these are hydraulic lash adjusters in the EA82 engine
  9. Hello Hope you can help answer a question I have about the valve lash adjustment in a EA82 motor I have in a 1992 Subaru Loyale. First off, I apologize as I don't have any experience with this subject and need some basic understanding to identify if my valve lash adjusters are bad??? Of the 8 valve adjusters, I can manual depress 5 of them about a 1/16 of an inch or a lil more but the other three are solid as ever, which I can not depress at all. Which are the bad ones? As I have read int the manual, I tried to fill the 5 and loosen the other three by placing them in oil and depressing them which will make them firmer??? or loosen them so they can be depressed. No change in any of them was noticed by performing this procedure. Is this an effective method? Is replacement of either of these the best solution or can I rebuild them? Thank You SJ
  10. Per the service manual for the EA82 engine, it states to retorque the head bolts after the engine has warmed and cooled after new head gaskets are installed. My question is has there been a new and improved / effective way to torque the bolts on this EA82 engine during the initial installation so the retorquing is no longer necessary? I'm hoping there is experience and success by torquing the head bolts initially therefore, disassembly to retorque is not required. Any suggestions and insight is appreciated. Thank you SJ

  12. I am looking for the torque spec settings for bolts in the EA82 engine. I have a 1992 Subaru Loyale that i am replacing leaky seals and gaskets. also replacing the timing belts and checking / adjusting the valve / cam clearances. is there a sheet or file that has all the various bolt torque specs used in this car / engine. Thank you, SJ
