Beverly, MA - GONE - FREE: EJ22T Engine

This was part of a whole car giveaway with a second engine, but circumstances changed and there's only the one EJ22T engine. Free, just come and get it. You can take the engine stand it's on, too, if you want. It's partly disassembled, but most of it should be there. Block is the important part, any...

Re: FREE: EJ22T Engine

I edited the OP, but Duchess is gone. There is still an EJ22T engine to be had.

Thanks

Re: FREE: Two EJ22T Engines

The top pic, but dirtier and the fender is also attached now. Can't find the title anywhere and I know I saw it somewhere, but it looks like I'll have to apply for a new one, which is a whole pain in the ass because Massachusetts. I'm having it towed to a storage unit today, so I'll try to get some ...

Beverly, MA - FREE: EJ22T Engine

Due to changing circumstance, Duchess is now gone, which was worse than losing everyone buy my mother and grandfather. However, there is still an EJ22T engine in the lonely garage, come and get it, take the engine stand it's on, too, if you like. ORIGINAL AD: One engine partly disassembled, the seco...

Or was it the insult to Rand because I think you missed the point. Taking care of things is admirable, but mindlessly following marketing and not thinking for oneself makes one a slave in the first place. They put themselves there, so I'm suggesting a mutually beneficial arrangement. I worked with a...

Re: OEM recommends 7,500 mile oil change interval.

I'm not faulting someone for taking care of their stuff, but it's just unnecessary (and not even as advised in the manual) and it causes him pain with his back problems (legit, as he's had several operations and still has chronic pain). Keeping it in a garage rather than outside (as he does) would d...

Re: OEM recommends 7,500 mile oil change interval.

Yeah, I think it's just BS spread by the oil and resellers. I have one of those fearful people as an uncle who argued with me about this, insisting on 3k mile oil changes so as "not to take the chance" on his yellow 2000 V6 Mustang (picture the type now?). Whatever, it's his time (under the car with...

Re: OEM recommends 7,500 mile oil change interval.

I always use synthetic and I did every 7500 or so in the Legacy, 10k in the Mazda3 and 2012 Focus (which is also about when the computer tells me it's time to change it). Mazda ran like new when I traded it with 156k and didn't use a detectable amount of oil between changes. Legacy engine looked alm...

Re: Mud flaps for a 1990

FWIW, mine were in a dealer catalog. There were pictures he showed me of them to pick them out. IIRC, there were 3 styles: "Subaru", "Legacy", and blank (perhaps also a simpler design that didn't hug the fenders). They were, like, $8. Since these cars are so old, you're best bet might be an old deal...

Re: Is this 1993 Legacy worth fixing?

Don't expect to keep it as a future concours contestant, but it's probably worth it. The inner fender that's part of the shell may need a hammer to get a new fender on. Also might need a new headlight housing. Check to see it's not cracked at the mounting points. Make sure the strut tower isn't fuck...

Re: 1986 Subaru GL-10 Leone TURBO

If you do cut the hood, the Mitsubishi Evo style vent would help flow through the coolers as well as keeping that heat out of the engine compartment. But, I hope you can get it without cutting. What's up with the rear wheel in that bottom picture? Is that camber adjustment to try to tame insane over...

That'll do it.

The people they had building them had no idea what they were doing—many didn't even own cars—...

Re: Mud flaps for a 1990

I bought mine at the dealer. I believe all the gen 1 cars were the same except one might have said, 'LEGACY' and the other, 'SUBARU'. I don't know, it was probably back in 1999 or so.

Clutch is probably stuck. In the old days before clutch pedal interlocks (stupid government laws pandering to morons), you could sometimes break it lose by by starting it in gear. Didn't always work, but was probably worth the shot. Now, it means you're pulling the engine no matter what unless you b...

Re: 93 BC 6speed awd swap

It can be disconnected. You don't need it. When the car is sitting exceeding a certain angle from level stopped, the brakes are held until the clutch is re-engaged. It's been about 8 years since I've looked at it, but if it's the hill holder, the cable should follow back to a lever at the master cyl...
