Re: Red Targa Brumby

That'll be one sweet ride when done. Thanks mate! There’s still a lot of work to be done - surface rust in the tray apparently from battery acid. Rust on the edge of the seam that passes behind the spare wheel. And some odd patches of surface rust here and there. I’ll chip away at it though. And on...

Re: Red Targa Brumby

All foam strips on the air ducting was replaced today with single sided foam air gap stuff. 2.5m (as stated on the box) was apparently just enough to do the work, I doubled up on the main heater box and air duct pieces. Everything else was one side only. The AC box copped a vacuuming. That was filth...

Re: Red Targa Brumby

love those dashes pity they are not plug and play. Yeah they are! So far in my experience anyway. The main plugs behind the dash plug into the brumby loom and we're off! It worked in Sunnie the Brumby over ten years ago and he’s still running well with the dash conversion. The wiring between the di...

Re: Red Targa Brumby

It’s August 2019 now, the windscreen work took some time to complete - finding time was the first issue then painting had to wait for the best possible weather conditions was the second. In the mean time I’ve done a few other things. This little red brumby will cop an EJ22 conversion. I’ve collected...

Re: Sister's Gen3 Liberty "Basil"

Well it’s almost August 2019, and I’ve got Basil in for HGs due to the pesky coolant and oil leaking externally. Head were shaved this time for piece of mind. I ended up getting new head bolts - at about $4 a piece it made sense to go this way. I also found out there’s two different types of head bo...

Re: My Vortex Project

That’s awesome news about the engine bay painting - and epic news about going for the fully body respray! Will that be a closed door respray or a full on door jambs and under all the windows job? Hopefully you’ll find someone for that dash trim piece. Once they’ve scanned it they should be able to r...

Re: Banner photo

Hmm I'm happy for anything thats Suby and off road related - I don't actually have anything really that suitable haha. I reckon we go for a mix of offroad and road-going Subaru’s. To get this board moving regularly again, I reckon we need to include/invite/make it easily accessible for those with n...

Re: EJ head bolts - how many times can they be used?

You mean the second time they’ve been reused? I’ve reused these once already - and it turns out there’s two different types of bolts for the EJ251, the two inner bolts are different to the outer bolts. I didn’t know this and had them where-ever they were randomly placed... no issues. I’ll have to se...

EJ head bolts - how many times can they be used?

As the title suggests, how many times can the EJ head bolts be used before it’s recommended that new ones be used? Obviously if the bolts are rusty, heat stressed (overheated) or the threads are damaged they’re to be replaced. I’ve got my sister’s EJ251 on the engine stand to replace the HGs (extern...

Re: New generation fusible links.

bumping this post to see if it shows up in the search engine. It will now that there's been new posts since the forum renewal. I have noticed that some posts are now cropping up in the google search when they haven't been posted in since the move. I'm still finding broken links that I'm slowly goin...

Re: My Vortex Project

I don’t know how to remove the dashboard from a vortex, but I found this on the USMB: NocturneVoyager said: Speaking of removal - if you want to remove just the front plastic bezel piece on an 86 XT, is that as equal of a pain in the butt too? Turbone said: The trim piece around the radio and inst p...

Lift kit is easy to sort. PM Nachaluva or find his page on the bookface - Subi Lift Oz ;)

He’ll have a lift kit for your outback!
