More work done on my garage queen '84 GL :drunk:

 

 

 

I stripped and painted the valve covers for my ea81 build, and did the same for a spare oil pan.

 

Valve covers are color matched to the OEM air cleaner. :popcorn:

I also restored the center caps, in preparation for installing the summer wheels.

 

I sure hop I dont loose these now :D

The motor Im buildig is a '85, hydro lifter.

 

Valve covers are different. :burnout:

 

Thats funny, the valve covers I got are from a Hydro lifter motor as well. Hmmm. Guess they got lazy on mine ;)

I don't think mine have that either. I'll have to double check. No idea what year my ea81 is, but judging by the momentary ticking after it hasn't been started for a while, it's hydro.

Spent the weekend stripping the '92 Loyale down.

 

Engine out, front is tore down to unibody, doors off, 45% of interior is out. Basically anything that could be removed without it being off the tires yet.

 

Need to get someone over here to evacuate the R-12 in the A/C system, and that will be coming out next.

 

Was real surprized with a lot of the bolts actually breaking loose/turning out instead of just breaking off. But I ain't complaining any....

I got the front end rebuild finished on Ol' KC and got him back on the road, he drives out real nice now, feels solid, no funny noises or nothen, so today I took OL' KC over to GD's place and got the secondary cooling fan working, so now I can start working towards getting the legacy running :o)

 

I gotta admit, he's starting to look mighty fine :D

Nice Video and the TrashWagon 10 Looks Nice... icon14.gif

 

Somehow, the Yelow Light on Roof Top makes it Look Like it was on an Emergency.

 

Here in my Country isn't Legal to have one of those Lights unless you are part of some Government Dept, like Fire Dept or Police, or Ambulance... but Certain School Buses has them too...

 

Kind Regards.

Here we use these lights mostly for Plow trucks (Snow removal) also the Park and Rec uses them on their Jeeps to notify to use caution.

 

I kinda had a rescue vehicle in mind when I added some stuff to the Legacy, Yellow/Black strip tape, Orange safety light, Tow hitch, and ground clearance.

Replaced crapped out original u-joints in the driveshaft (had to have the old ones punched out, $$ grrrr) and an oil change. Nothing spectacular, but the weird low-speed clicking from the rear is now gone, and the engine is purring nicely with the new batch of 5w30 in her.

Thank you for your Kind Answer!

 

It is Funny but I really always thought that your nice Legacy, looked like a rescue vehicle, and I Like that.

Passed WI state emission inspection with my 2.5 liter franken motor in my 1996 Legacy. :brow: 1,000 miles and counting since the conversion, nice to have power in fifth gear despite 3.9 gears and 27" tires.
