Re: The "Retired" 510

Tore the intake mani off this morning. It gets easier and easier every time! :) Today seems like clear weather. Might get to pick and pull soon. https://s8.postimg.org/vtcekzng5/20171124_093713.jpg https://s8.postimg.org/ha59jjzg5/20171124_093743.jpg https://s8.postimg.org/9u5zxrr6d/20171124_093749....

Re: The "Retired" 510

Good bye til now. Lol I'm back and I'm ready to get some work done on the car. First I need to get a replacement upper intake manifold. One of these dry days I'll get out to pick and pull for it. Then I'd like to find steering knuckles with a 14mm ball joint stud hole so I can replace the ball joint...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Eh, part luck, part dumb ass probably. Who knows how long that's been cracked. But yeah, at least I'm getting to know the KA pretty well.

Re: The "Retired" 510

I got all geared up to tap NPT threads this morning, but when I was getting ready I noticed that the hole had a crack in it. Wow, lol. I won't be getting to this until I find a replacement upper intake manifold. Yay, I get to take that off again. This time I'll be very thorough in my deletes, before...

Re: The "Retired" 510

I found it! Well I found one, but only one. It's the freaking bleeder bolt! I'm going to tap it to the next size up because the threads are looking extremely unhealthy. What in the hell, why did that take so long?

Re: The "Retired" 510

Been spending the past few days working out this issue. It's all making me want the excessive intake manifold again. But I'm not paying retail, that's for sure. I'll wait until a used one pops up. That wouldn't fix the problem, but it'll make me happy in other ways. Lol And just to rule it out, I go...

Re: The "Retired" 510

I ended up bypassing the heater completely and I've still got a leak somewhere. I'm kinda stumped on this to be honest. I also would rather not spend all my time away from work on the car. Despite the issues, my friend convinced me to shoot a short video featuring my car for his YouTube channel. I'l...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Not sure if I mentioned it before, but I did rebuild it. Used oring part numbers at Napa from a tutorial I found. The process went smooth, nothing broke and it all went back together fine...

I got an assortment of vacuum caps and coolant caps this morning. Should clean my make shift plugs up great.

Re: The "Retired" 510

So I must have had this leak all along. The radiator cap doesn't even get hot while idling in my driveway now. But I found that my heater control valve leaks when it's closed off and the system is pressurized. Does just fine when it's open though. I'll be looking into a replacement now, but I want t...

Re: The "Retired" 510

By Splitloom do you mean that stiff(er) ribbed plastic loom stuff you can get at the part stores? If so, I agree, ugly as can be, and harder to clean when it does get dirty. Somehow one of the oem spring clamps worked it's way loose on the heater (out) connection. You know one of those under the int...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Getting some of the wiring in a prettier state. https://s26.postimg.org/nvj6jbqkp/Screenshot_2017-09-17-08-14-16.png Also found I have a front main seal leak. It's oozing out and flinging pretty much everywhere off the crank pulley. It's weird because when I went through with the last bout of engine...

Re: New Car Options

Found out that the truck I posted before actually has had the engine replaced at some point. So the motor is unknown and the body has 300,000+ miles. I'm going to look at it tomorrow and bringing a compression tester.&. If I pick it up I'll be looking at all rubber bushings to see if any should ...

Re: New Car Options

I'll be keeping the truck more or less stock. No lifting or lowering to worry about. Besides, independent front suspension is quite alright with me. I thought I had a good one on the hook until my last question was how many miles on it. 314,000. Normally that would be alright but I need it to make i...

Re: New Car Options

So I think I've decided on a 720. 4x4, MT, KC or bust. Based on price, availability, and function. Aiming for an '84+.

Anyone have any ideas about apecifics I should look for when shopping?

Thinking I'll probably keep the Outback for now. Hoping to be moving into an undeveloped

I might go with the heat shrink hose clamps in certain spots that won't need to come off. Like underneath the intake manifold and such...

Re: The "Retired" 510

You're right^^^ Everywhere I used a harbor freight clamp has given me issues. What I really need to do is order a bunch of good clamps for when I come back. That way I'll have them when these ones loosen up again, I can just replace them one by one. The good news is the leaks have stopped completely...

Re: The "Retired" 510

Just got back from a test drive. The overflow tank didn't level didn't change at all, before (with air in the system from a leak) the overflow would be spilling over within 15 minutes of driving. Honestly, I was ripping on it pretty hard so if there's still an issue it'll show soon enough. And I ser...

Re: The "Retired" 510

So y'all thought I was gonna be able to look at this car everyday and not do anything about it? Hahaha, no way. I woke up around 5:30 this morning and it was practically light out so I hooked up the cooling system pressure tester and pumped it up. I was very thorough with the leak search and I found...
