Re: Hello from Salt Lake City, Utah

Re: New to the Forum

That's a big collection of little cars. Good luck with the Subaru's, they really are unlike anything else I've ever worked on or driven. The more I mess with mine, the more I like it.

Re: Family Photo

Someone asked me if it was a VW. I said yes, I washed it in hot water and it shrunk.

Re: Family Photo

Out in public for the first time. Three up in the LBV! Still not perfect but better. The ignition curve has a notch in it somewhere, full advance comes on like a switch at around 4000rpm. . I'll be looking for a new distributor if I can't fix this one. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170825/70891...

Re: Family Photo

I have a pair of base gaskets I'll send you. I also sourced them online. I used the Gx500(?) head gaskets. They work well and look to be a newer style. As
Lao shaved 045 off heads.

Re: Family Photo

I took a video of it running to see if anyone thinks it sounds good, bad or indifferent, but don't think it will upload to here. I think my issue is too fat of a pilot jet, anyone know if there is a cross reference?

Re: Family Photo

I can't get it to do 40mph, so shouldn't be an issue! I am having to rev it up though. Still has no bottom end power. Smoke has cleared up some, but I think I am running rich. I have the 100 main jet in it now, will look for 95 and 90 tonight but it seemed better. I am not sure if the bottom end bog...

Re: Family Photo

Drove the van on the street for the first time since I've owned it and probably the first time since 1998(last reg). I think I need to sort out the jetting. Tops out at about 40mph and makes a lot of smoke. I have skimmed the heads, set timing to 14 deg, cleaned the exhaust ports, installed Pertroni...

Re: Family Photo

Motor is running, haven't taken it out yet, but this weekend I will hopefully get it on the road. I need to now as the VW van developed an oil leak on the highway and seized.

Re: Family Photo

I won't get the heads back until Monday, so I have until then before I make my own. I'm not good at staying in the lines, so figured if they were available I would order them.

Re: Family Photo

I am hoping to get the motor back together next week. SOA let me down, by not ordering the base gaskets last Thursday when I called. Oh well. I did get the parts I ordered, the heads and cylinders should be ready today and then put it all together! I will try to be good with the run in process. I ha...

Re: Family Photo

I used a Lokar EC-80FU universal brake cable kit. I shaved the rear mount down to accept the original ring clamp and to lay flatter in the drum. The cables follow the original path, the passenger side front mount is moved back slightly to reduce the curve of the cable and I made a bracket that bolts...

Re: Family Photo

I signed up with Tapatalk in the end, works pretty good, unlike the van right now. Got a little carried away with decarboning the exhaust. Now have the heads and jugs off, getting a little shaved off the head and deglazing the cylinders. Compression test showed 100psi cold with 110psi wet. Cylinders...

Re: Family Photo

I did, but the one I have is a Mitsubishi. I passed up an 88 Subaru 4x4 pick up recently as I might have enough cars for the time being.

Re: Family Photo

It's in decent shape considering I got it from Minnesota. Has low miles, 5200 and from what I gather has a Sedan motor in it.(Fuel pump vac port is untapped, carb jets correspond to Sedan and Nippon Denso dist.) It sat outside for a long time, interior was rags and someone shot it. I've been through...

Re: Family Photo

The little truck is a Mitsubishi MiniCab I had planned on dropping a 360 body on to, but was too nice to hack up. I am in the process of titling it, fingers crossed it works.

Re: Family Photo

What are most of you using to post pictures? I tried Dropbox but it didn't seem to work. I would ideally like to link pictures from the iPhone to here, but have to go through someone else's server. Any suggestions? Much better at fixing old things than figuring out new things!

I've been skulking around here for a while now, reading through the technical info, studying the BOR and collecting parts. Almost ready to come out and play. Thought I had better get posting pictures figured out before I do though.
