Re: "Yak" the SG Forester

Hehehe... yeah, yellow - my MIL’s favourite colour it turns out! She doesn’t know that I’ve done the paint work yet. Inlet manifold will be painted. It’s 90% stripped and I have a new paint can waiting for the weather to “get better” for painting. Can’t complain about rain with all these fires aroun...

Re: "Yak" the SG Forester

Yesterday it really started coming together. With the heat on Friday I didn’t make it to the shed, even after dinner I was done so nothing achieved. It’s amazing how quickly progress happens once all the technical stuff and cleaning is done! https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img921/1318/eNucVi.jpg The...

Re: "Yak" the SG Forester

Finally some visual development in this build! Yesterday the heads FINALLY went on. The hold up was valve lapping, cleaning and reassembly between wrapping up work for 2019, family and the silly season! Plus the heat at times. http://imageshack.com/a/img922/6346/92yuct.jpg ^ new water pump, oil pump...

Re: Merry Christmas and a safe and happy new year for 2020

Happy new year everyone! Our local fireworks were “cancelled” due to conditions being too windy. But they reckon the midnight fireworks were let off with the earlier fireworks for the kids. There was a distinct pause of one or two minutes in the middle of the early event. Classic spin from the counc...

Merry Christmas and a safe and happy new year for 2020

Merry Christmas all! Firstly, I thought I’d drop this in the Subaru chat to hopefully gain a bit more attention that the open slather section - I’ll talk about the forum shortly. Merry Christmas one and all for the 2019 silly season, Honda owners included :lol: I hope you have a safe Christmas and t...

Re: Ellie the Brumby (1991)

Hey Sarah,

Welcome to the forum! Now that you have your brumby, you know what the real issue is?

You will always end up with two!

Enjoy the journey with the rust hunt and the other little bits.

Re: Hi from Hobart

Welcome to the forum Jez, Sorry to hear about your crashes Levorg. I bet the insurance company is saying speed was a factor or the eye sight system didn’t do it’s thing properly so they’re not liable for the damage or something to that effect. I don’t particularly like insurance companies, but we’ve...

Re: My Vortex Project

If not going the H6 why not drop an EJ22 in it? Or one of the EJ20 turbos? Totally worth it! If your engineer doesn’t like it I’d be looking for a new engineer! On the H6, you could remote mount the alternator behind the engine, plenty of room of something like that. You’d have to work out how to ru...

Re: "Yak" the SG Forester

How many Subys in the family, Bennie? Mother in-law now has two - this SG and Sunnie the Brumby. My sister has Basil the Gen3 Liberty. And I’ve got my Brum3y, Ruby Scoo and the RS (yet to be put on the road). So six all up, plus some parts bombs at M&D’s place to keep the brumbys and the L going re...

How does the engine mounts look? Have they had any oil on them or come out of them?
Long story short - proper update to come - it was a self inflicted driveshaft issue!

Basil is running very well, sounds awesome and is now back to scaring birds and roos up on the Murray;)

Cheers

Bennie
