Kinda but not to that extreme. IMO, the flywheel bolt holes where filled out too much and this allowed for too much 'play' in them and the first time I replaced the clutch, I had the flywheel machined. When I put it all back together, I didn't use any Loctite (which I never had to before on a Subaru) but this time the flywheel became loose and the flywheel bolts broke. So out with another EA82 flywheel and this time had it machined correctly and back together without issue.

Does hatchie still grind between reverse and first? I seem to remember it being pretty difficult to switch between the two.......or was that only in low range? cant remember.

And Paul, the other day I was messing around with my key switch. Turns out mine isnt far off of hatchie's. If I turn it too far it lose's connection and even when held correctly it has a noticeable resistance through the contacts. Old stuff wears out, who'd av thought :rolleyes:

I think this was due to the original clutch but since the new clutch ( and the second new clutch :( ) it has been working fine. Even fixed up the sloppy shifter and rubber strap that holds the gear shifter base in place, just need to add a top engine stay rod, as hatchie still jumps into 4WD when you power on hard.

I remember Hatchie!! (if it is the same Hatchie that I am thinking of!)

I have a DVD at home of the WA crew taking their Subies for a run - Hatchie makes quite a few appearances :)

I got the DVD out of the drawer to watch a couple of weeks ago but never got around to watching it - this thread has given me inspiration to do so now :)

I think the previous owners name was Dave? (with the username dave2000 or something on here)??

Yeah Tigger that's Hatchie. It's creator was Dave who's still on here at times - username SuBaRiNo, that username you posted is his email ;)

Dave also created the DVD which will become obvious when you watch it - still a very good mix of hatchie and some old rides you'll remember from "back in the day". I've got a copy of that DVD too :twisted:

Dang! That clutch is nasty! suppose you noticed when that happened :D.

Nice pic Paul, I took one two but it isnt as good. Gotta get as much of the old ones on the net while they are still around.

Ive seen hatchie in a few youtube clips, certainly had me lusting for a hatch. Shame there isnt many of them around. At least hatchie makes it out of the shed....ahhhemmm ;).

Regards

Doug

Yes we do. I would like to have Hatchie there this weekend but Tristan has to work for a living. We need to put in a AUSubaru lotto syndicate :D

Whats with the wing mirrors...is that a JDM hatch or something? Very nice btw

Thats looks like a nice shed, seems to be something shiny blue with nice gold wheels next to the hatch, it may also be a 2 door & be very desirable :twisted:

Yep... JDM fitted items. I've also seen them in other countries. We used to have them on old falcons and holdens.

Does look shinny but not sure who owns it
