New timing belt and water pump along with all the pulleys, tensioner and seals.
A/C recharged and replaced V belt.
Replaced spark plugs.

Runs much smoother now. It was time 189,500 km.

I must say the old timing belt and other old parts look like new.

Re: What have you done to your SVX (or other Subaru) today?

Actually did all this in the last quarter of 2020. Replaced my engine with a zero miles engine I had, replaced lower front ball joints, new shocks at all 4 corners, and replaced rear differential bushings. All done using OE parts.
Now trying to decide if this non-mechanic wants to tackle rebuilding my old engine in my spare time just to see if I can do it and perhaps learn something new.

Off with the winter wheels & on with the summer's. Just looked a the forecast though and it looks like some snow on the weekend.

Think I'll have to wait a few days before the spring detailing.

I took the SVX out of it's winter nest. It started like I drove it yesterday even though it's been over 4 months.
It's been over 20 C here for a while. Very nice for April.

Replaced the metal rear brake lines. What a pain in the butt that was! Back on the road. 307k and starting to count up again.

Maybe in the BRZ. At 307k I dont think the SVX is up for all those curves!
I will have to look into it. Kim and I could relive our pre-children freedom if we can convince the in laws to babysit for a weekend!

It'd be good to see you all again, even in the BRZ
