  1. We'll, For everyone wondering what was wrong, I've solved the mystery. The plug wires were pulled too far back on the distributor side and not making contact. I need a new distributor cap now... I melted one of the terminals a bit from electricity arcing every once in a while I guess, but it runs now! Thank you for all your help!
  2. I'm afraid I haven't got a compression gauge, but I have tested by removing the spark plugs and turning it over without them, and then adding them back in and turning it over again. The latter is a lot stiffer, but that's not much use. The installation process I followed was the video miles fox posted to youtube with the rotation halfway through. I did remove and replace the spark plugs wiring, I installed them in a 1324 pattern going around the distributor counter clockwise, though I'll double check that again when I get off work. After that I'll be double checking the cam positions. As far as repairs go, I've done head, exhaust, intake, and valve cover gaskets. Those o rings in the cam towers, flushed the engine, new thermostat, new radiator, new radiator hoses, new spark plugs, and of course an oil and filter change. It was running before I began work, just vomiting oil and coolant, and overheating pretty bad.
  3. Ok, So I just finished doing head gaskets, and replacing practically my entire cooling system on my 89 subaru loyale. It's a 4wd 5 speed manual SPFI EA82. upon trying to start it again it will crank and occasionally putter to life if I press the gas pedal to the floor, but it never truly fires up. When it tries there is occasionally a large kick and it dies immediately after. My thoughts are that I have my distributor and camshafts operating exactly opposite from one another but I'm not sure. Has anyone experienced this before or have any tips as to what it might be?

    Intake Manifold Bolts

    No worries! It's been a minute since I've got to work on it, but I've finally got them out and found nearly identical replacement bolts at Tacoma screw. I'm excited to get the Cylinder heads back on the car and get it going again! Thanks for all the advice! The quarter turn forward and back worked best for me. I did not use penetrating oil, but not because I didn't think it'd help. Just don't have any!
  5. Hey! I'm a newbie here, I bought a 89 Subaru GL wagon a couple weeks ago and have been working on the head gaskets. When pulling the intake manifold off I broke one of the bolts. I know the two long ones on the other side are going to break as well, they have not been cooperative. I can get the studs out, but where do I get the new manifold bolts? I can't find them anywhere.
