Hello!

#1 Post by Zanderman127 » 6 months ago

Hello, I am new to this group. It was suggested to me from a group on Facebook as a great place to get parts and expert advice about my new car.

My car is a 1970 sedan. I just bought it in February. It had been sitting since 1995. The first weekend my friend and I were playing with it we were able to get it running off of ether to make sure it runs, which it does beautifully. It's not in the best shape since it is from Wisconsin, so I'm not trying to make it showroom condition or need specific Subaru parts. I've just wanted one for the last 10 years and was finally able to find one near me, so looking to have some fun with it. I will try and post pics of it, but not sure if it will work.

There are still some parts that I need right now that I'm hoping to get a decent deal on. They are:

- Brake Wheel Cylinder, one front and one rear
- Axel Nuts for both front wheels
- Throttle Cable
- Choke Cable
- E Brake Cables

My goal was to have it road ready by June, but it's been difficult finding those parts without paying an arm and a leg for them. Any help with those and things along the way is greatly appreciated!

Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your group!

P. 360 and 374 in the BOOK OF REPRINTS give all the info on readily available new
Subaru JUSTY rear wheel cyls that can be easily adapted to your 360.

Welcome from Norman Okla. I have wheel cyl cups on ebay & I use Apple Hydraulics to sleeve the cyls . The 360 needs some oil with the ether , I would drop & check the oil pump out for good measure.
