Robert here, just joined thank you. I have owned 4 subis over the years, from the 1600 when they first came out to a couple of L wagons and a Brumby (how I wish I could have that back). Looking at getting another one after a long break. Still fancy the dual range, old habits die hard I guess.

G'day Robert, from Newcastle, NSW.
Pretty new here, myself.
Lots of good information and help.
I picked up my Brumby recently, as a "Too good to pass up" type purchase.
Keeping an eye on the market, it seems that Brumbies are becoming more sought after of late.
There are a few good examples on the market, atm, but price reflects their owners passion.
The odd bargain popping up every now and again.
Good luck with your search.

Hi everyone! I’m doing a 5speed conversion with my brumby just looking for information in putting the clutch together I sat the l series friction plate in the my series flywheel and put the l pressure plate on that it all looks like it fits?

G’day Brumby driver,

It will all fit but it won’t have the same clamping force as the L series setup because the step in the MY flywheel is deeper than the L series.

I can’t remember the details off hand as to how much you need to shave the MY flywheel down to have the same step as the L series. But if you have the L series flywheel you can measure that to get your answer.

All the best with it. I’ve read good things about the 5 speed swap but never got around to it!

Cheers

Bennie

Hello All,
Owen from the mid north coast NSW. Second Subaru (2008 liberty wagon, 2.5lt) was perfect when I lived in the city. Now it’s too low but I want to keep it and lift it.
Not after more suspension travel as such, just some more clearance for the dirt roads and paddocks that I encounter more often now. Maybe some bigger tyres to soften out the bumps too.

Unfortunately as the name suggests I’m a noob. I’ve never modified a car in my life, excited to start!

Will look around and post in appropriate threads.

First subie was a old boxy sports wagon I drove across the states in 90s’ took it into some wild country, loved it.

Greetings all. Returning to the Subaru fold. Had a 2003 Forester from around 2010 to 2014 and have just place on order an Outback Sport. Hopefully the wait won't be too bad. First time in over 40 years of driving I have had to wait more than a couple of days for a car.

Cheers all

Peter

Welcome Peter!

New car, noice. I hope they don’t keep you waiting in anticipation - and when you do get it I hope there are no bugs to iron out.

You’ll have to be our pioneer on this latest model for others out there ;)

Cheers

Bennie
