Re: 1997 svx sold for almost 20k

I watched that auction. Prices are going up nicely since Covid hit.
The price of some vehicles still astounds me. A Fiat Jolly (glorified golf cart) sold for $50K. A 1967 Toyota 2000GT $825K.

Re: Bump stop replacement

The GC soft option looks very much like stock.
The bump stop is not a critical component of the suspension. It just cushions the blow when you bottom out.
I'd give them a try.

Re: "Rack and Pinion" question

They fear what they do not know or understand.

Good deal on the rack. They even supply a return shipping label for the $50 core fee. They must really want the old racks to rebuild.

Re: Subaru EG33 engine - 1000 hours

Your videos are always a treat.
That much time at a steady 5,000 rpm proves the EG33 would make a great boat engine. I have a spare one I've always wanted to put in a boat with above water exhaust.

Re: drivetrain conversion questions

The Outback transmission is tough, no problems. It's a 4:44. SVX is 3:545. It will have better acceleration but rev a bit higher on the highway. If it was done right, the rear differential gears...

Re: "Rack and Pinion" question

Stay away from the "fits all". You want with sensor/solenoid or sensor ready. #809 is correct but out of stock. I would call them to check on fitment and availability.
There are places that do...

Re: Lsvx-t

The hood fits well. Not much of a hole to clear stuff. I'm surprised.
I kinda like the look of the intercooler sticking out the front. It's no worse than the waterfall grill.

Re: Lsvx-t

Looking good. Getting a hood on there looks like a challenge. Lots of obstacles.

Re: Dash lights on, no power steering

I just recycled 2 or 3 of them about 2 months ago when I did a basement clean out. Rats!
You don't need an SVX one. Other Subies are the same, most minus the rubber insert.

Re: Dash lights on, no power steering

It sounds like a battery/electrical problem to me. The power steering is adjusted electrically according to RPM or speed depending on trim level.
I agree with the alternator diagnosis. When...

Re: 2004 Baja Turbo anyone?

Wow! Turbo and manual transmission. Beautiful colour too. Not the usual silver, black or yellow. I'm sure this one will go for a lot of $$$. This would be a good sell on BaT.

Yes exactly. It's been doing it for a very long time. I should try adjusting it.

Re: Need help on transmission diagnosis

Wow! That's fantastic. I'm pretty sure mine is worn out. At exactly 80 kph the tranny hunts up and down between OD and drive, TC lock/unlock.. If I speed up or slow down it doesn't do it.

Re: 57K Polo on BaT

Collector car prices have gone through the roof. A BMW Z8 was a $120,000 car and now they're seeing 200K plus.
I saw a Fiat Jolly go for 130K:rolleyes: That is something I truly can't understand....
