  1. Hey everyone, I've got some new problems with my 87 GL10 Turbo XT. I'm hoping you all can help me out again. I pulled the coolant passage off the back of the intake manifold to replace the gaskets and the thermo vacuum valve as they were leaking coolant. To get it out without pulling the entire manifold I had to remove the turbocharger, distributor, knock sensor, and the throttle cable bracket on the bell housing. I just recently got it all back together and after some issues timing it (since I removed the disty) we finally got it to time at 25 degrees BTDC. Now however it tries to idle at 3000 rpm and heats up really fast and overheats despite my upgraded dual core cooling system. We haven't done tons of troubleshooting yet, just looking for things to try while I do so. It ran like a dream before I took it apart for the leak. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  2. Subaru XT Coupe : Found someone with a creative licence who redrew this Vortex Ute : Add : Does anybody know who drew this ? And this is my take on it : Drew up another view of it : As far as doing the 'mod' for this I think it would be relatively easy : Remove the back seats, boot & turn it into a tailgate ( Optional to make a hard cover version as shown ). Cut the roof just behind the B pillar, then slide the rear window forward until it meets the back of B pillar + cut the side windows down to fit. Knock up some inner panels for the tray, then form up some ‘tube rails’ to go round the tray edges, turning up & over with a ‘roll bar’ somewhere near the B pillar, paint it red, and lastly put a few spotties on it. Bob’s your Uncle … Also finished drawing up the rear end opening : A few notes on this : Hinge for tail gate would need to be reinforced from behind & some sort of support to stop it from dropping down too far. The bar around the edge of tray could be 2x2" square box section shaped / rolled to suit. A smaller section used as spacers / connectors to frame ( I'd leave enough room to get your fingers in gap ) Removable hard top & latches not shown for clarity ... If anyone one wants to build it, let me know& will do some more accurate sketches ... P.S. - Mr Willy has a old shell that he's going to chop up, might get to see what it looks like ... Cheers, Bantum ...
