You will be amazed at the simplicity and durability of these cars. You have many years of "winter beatings" left in this car. Welcome to the site. Its a treasure trove of good technical information.

I like the subie better!
fwd ftl.
I would never put money into a FWD car, RWD maybe.
Never understood the honda thing but to each his own.
Props to the new subie.

That's the input shaft bearing. Just in case you were thinking it's the throw out bearing.

Throw out bearing would make noise with the clutch pedal in because that's when it's engaged.
