Re: aftermarket seats

I think the tight spot is not across shoulders, but between the transmission tunnel and the door. Check out my Recaro install here:

Re: front differential setup how to and re-rebuild of genuine Subaru Remanufactured 4

I've had mine for quite a while - three years (?), and I can assure you it's awesome in the snow :-).

Re: Old car smell

Ozone treatment.

I trust this is something in the category "do not try this at home".....

Find an old street lamp (quick silver vapor type) - the whole thing, not just the big bulb.

Re: silicone couplers for throttle body

Sorry, no. And I live in Finland :)

I'd try hydraulic hose shops or something similar industrial stuff.

Re: Anyone have any ideas???

If you do not find any water massive fuel dilution is another possibility.

A faulty injector or a cracked o-ring? Blown pressure regulator?

Does the oil smell like fuel?

Re: Bent Hub and/or Knuckle Assembly

Ok,

Did you remove the spring to check the shaft and travel?

Check the LH/RH part # issue?

Check the tire to strut clearance LH/RH?

Maybe the welded-on part which attaches the knuckle to...

Re: Bent Hub and/or Knuckle Assembly

Does the wheel (tire) touch the strut? If not, then the knuckle is probably ok.

Have you checked the drive shaft nut - it has not come loose?

If you did not make the comment about the shim I'd...

Re: A/C Compressor Drag

Yeah,

600cc of oil in addition to what ever was there to start with is probably a big problem.... and may well be the cause for the increased resistance to run the compressor. This is not good and...

Re: A/C Compressor Drag

Ok, sorry to hear that.

I've had success twice with a 500g charge. Does the compressor still cycle with a lowish charge? If I understand correctly it should not do this.

Does anyone know if...
