Re: O/T - Subura died and will not start :(
YOU DID JINX ME!! So since it's technically your fault, you have to drive over here and help me fix it [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] J/K. I called an Independant Subaru shop yesterday and he said the same thing as you, that's it's probably the timing belt and to check to make sure the rotor is spinning. Anyway, I picked his brain for a bit and asked if my head is trashed since the piston probably smashed my valves. He said, "Nope". He said that Subaru was smart and that they have just enough clearance as to where it won't smash the valves. I'll maybe confirm this with another shop, but that makes me happy. I got it somewhat torn down today, but am having a HELL of a time getting the crankshaft puller bolt out. I got a 22mm socket on there with a large breaker bar, and so far, all I've managed to do was to back the car up my driveway cause I'm yanking so hard. These Japanesse cars don't have a left hand thread crank bolt, do they? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
