Usually they run better when you DONT lock the keys in them :rolleyes:

 

Just a thought :P and you're welcome for the head-light, wasnt doing me any good... Except now I gotta go buy a set from the Junkyard so I can practice Turbones projector conversion :banana:

(Actually suprised when I realized you were a female and tackleing this project):)

 

Sorry, Sorry, Sorry for having to say this- But females can do ALL that you can, except perhaps, spelling the word tackling.

The sparks are pretty new but I bought pre-gapped so I never looked at em...:

 

Always check them before you install- Don't trust that they are right...So simple to verify... You want to do it...

fuel filter?

air filter?

dirty MAF?

plugs?

wires?

tire pressure?

 

not sure (my memory can be lousy at times), but you are in Idaho? right?

could be winter blend fuel as well? (winter blends always seem to produce lower mpg's)

Jeez its been a while since I've been on this thing... I've looked countless times for a writeup with pictures on how to change my oil pump gasket. Any suggestions? My HTKYSA is wonderful except its for the wrong years... If only I had the next in the series... anyhow. My main question is do you have to remove the timing belts to do this? I know you have to take the covers off... and the clutch fan gets in the way I'm told... but I don't want to dig into this if I'm gonna screw up my timing... Thx

Yeah Ive seen some of his vids and I meant to check... but if I remember correctly he has the engine out. I'm sure its more difficult with it still in the bay. I'll be sure to look though...

Well I'm sure glad I kept that old hood... replaced the winshield washer line heads with the ones from the old hood and they work good as new! Also did my brake pads and rotors. Partsyard had a $6/tire special on and I found a whole set of studded snow tires with decent tread left on em. All in all I'd say its been a pretty productive week :) Alls I have left to replace is the passenger side axle and swap out for some better tires and I'll be all ready for WCSS14 :)

u could get that to come out with a "come along" really easy my friend did it with the door post(passenger door also known as shot-gun) on my sisters 87 subaru gl wagon after his wife hit it going in reverse luckily he bought all replacing parts and he installed them, he did alot of autobody for a long until he hurt his back really bad:-\(he was in construction and fell two stories and broke his back which now has a disk in it:-\)

 

So I straightened that fender out much as I could...

Soooo almost 195k miles. Changed the oil and put a new plug bolt in since the old one was rounded off http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z131/rosie4491/Mobile%20Uploads/mms_picture-27.jpg .... Replaced the front passenger side axle and wheel bearings. Fixed a couple small trim pieces like the thing that holds the lap belt from falling down http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z131/rosie4491/Mobile%20Uploads/mms_picture-25.jpg so you can actually buckle up in my passneger seat again :headbang: lol. Uhhh hooked up my emissions canister finally. Got an alignment and replaced my break pads and rotors. http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z131/rosie4491/Mobile%20Uploads/mms_picture-24.jpg All that in the last month. :clap:

 

Next up: Rear shoes and cylinders. Passenger side is leaking like crazy so I only have 2 brakes atm. Kinda sucks... a lot. But I plan on attacking that in the morning before work.
