  1. Pump throttle as mentioned above and fire her up! It just got down to 26 degrees last night in my town. I will give you my trick if its a real pain to start. Use a blow dryer and heat up the carb lol. I learned from an old dodge (go figure) guy
  2. my first mods would be an EJ22 swap. This will help with the next mods. SJR lift 4" with redrilled 6 lug hubs and 27" tires. After that EJ22 swap and lift, it would be a custom suspension with aR154 and transfer case to locker diffs. All this is possible but a jeep will be cheaper lol. On a serious note EJ22 and SJR lift would be great.
  3. So I ordered the accelerator and clutch cable from 1stsubaruparts.com. even though the order stated a 1994 loyale the parts are direct fit for my 1987 GL 4X4 EA82.
  4. Thanks! Just places order with 1stsubaruparts.com
  5. I need some help with the throttle cable and clutch cable part numbers and exedy clutch part #. 1987 GL CARB 1.8. I have searched "throttle cable"" clutch cable" "ea82" for the page with the Genuine Subaru part numbers for my 1987 Subaru GL. I need both the throttle cable and clutch cable part numbers so I can order them ASAP!. Or if somebody has either parts please PM me! Thanks in advance
  6. Timesert would be best option here. Don't worry helicoil work great, that's what's on my cam seal cover right now! It needs to be seated tight or it will leak. Just did that one LOL

    Weber DGAV flooding

    I have a few questions for the OP. Did you buy this as a kit from Redline Weber? Do you have a fuel return? How old is this Weber? What is fuel psi and how is it regulated? Is the carb set up designed for a Subaru? I had your exact problems, spacer didn't do anything. So here what I did, I rebuilt the carb, not just gaskets and the float, I mean the whole thing. I had oversized emulsion tubes, too small of jets, in short a jacked up carb not designed for a Subaru lol. Make sure it is jetted, emulsion tubes and so on are the same as the ones Weber uses in their kit.
  8. Cool, Im assuming they are long enough? I just tried a set of AutoZone wires today on my Chevrolet truck and behold! They don't fit either lol
  9. So I am finding out the AutoZone plug wires don't fit my EA82 engine right. They don't quite reach the plugs and seat so I get crappy idling and rough running! WTH is with that? Lol. Now that I'm over my rant, what plug wires are you guys using that actually reach? I'm about to buy the universal cut to length ones an make my own. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

    Hill holder- help!

    Hey Subasaurus, I can definitely use some guidance, pictures anything to get this bad boy to work. Just getting around to my exedy clutch job so it's going to start being put back together here soon!
  11. How big of parts can you print Dave T? I'd be willing to send you all my EA82 plastics to get new! I have a buddy who is an upholster and can paint/dye any color, even match my EA82 blue! I need new before mine crumble lol
  12. What's wrong with Summer driving? My EA82 wagon is apart this year, but last summer I lived in Phoenix Arizona and I drove the piss out of it, ac on full blast almost 80 miles a day for my job! This was all stop and go milage as I was a merchandiser and had to go from store to store. My truck is flush the system, electric dual fans with sealeed shroud, 20% coolant to water ratio, and a bottle of redline water wetter!
  13. So my dual range in my 1987 EA82 GL 5- speed is getting very hard to put in first gear, I almost have to stop before I can down shift to it. So I talked to AAMCO transmissions where I live and they can rebuild it for about $800. Is this priced Right? Anybody have a good DR they want to give up? I can build engines, trans are not my thing. Does anybody have a service manual for the transmission?
  14. Thanks guys. GD, that thing would be great if it was accurate! I'm skeptical about it's accuracy, but it's not hard to check outside on a dvom and have some tell me what it's reading inside.
  15. So i thought I had a charging system problem. nope! I have a dead volt gauge problem. How do I fix this? I'm thinking instead of tearing the dash apart and finding why it's dead, the AutoZone special meter looks good at $20. Opinions?
