Raw deal on the block. The cylinder liners aren't pressed in and replaceable are they? Suppose a part like that might be a bit difficult to locate.

I was at a yard in Phoenix this week and saw a FF1 wagon there and the block was still in it. I hadn't been keeping up with the thread or else I would have looked at it more closely!

There is a good chance I will be going back to Phoenix in 2 weeks for another class, PM me if you want me to take a look or grab anything off the car.

As far as some of your electrical gremlins I have some people that can probably help with the alternator/MSD issues, as far as the lights only turning on when the key is in are you sure that's not the way it's supposed to be? I know a lot of older Subarus (including my first gen Legacys) lights only work if the key is in and turned. The only way the marker lights will work without the key is with the stupid parking light switch on top of the steering column...

Sadly I can't use a FF-1 motor.

Did you get any photos of that one at the junkyard though? There aren't exactly many floating around.

I didn't, but I will as soon as I go back. I haven't been reading totally religiously, I missed the part where you made the choice on the EA63, did they put that in a car available in the US? DL/GL or? There were a handful of older cars in general. I wonder if the case halves are different between the 63 and 52 to the point you couldn't use them... I'll let you know as soon as I know when I am going.

If anyone else is interested in an FF-1, there is one for sale in South Bend:

The EA63 shortblock is a special one with dry sleeves designed as replacement for the wet sleeve blocks. It was never actually sold on any cars from the factory, only as a part from Subaru.

I know this doesn't help fix the engine issue, but here's something cool for those of us with the 4x140 wheel issues:


Turns out the three lugged- Renault Daphine I saw a few years ago has a "big brother" in France...

Renault Alpine A110 and A310. These were three and four lugged cars. The only shame is that these wheels would be 300/400 EURO each... bleh.... but can come in sizes from 13x7 to 13x10. I think they'd look amazing on the FF1!

This sucks soo much. I have not been keeping up on the thread lately and I come back to the worst possible news


Steve, you mentioned that the block was offered as a part only from SOA, correct? ( I assume a reman part) Do you have the part #'s for the block or possibly the sleeves? If so let me know and I can make some calls for you.

I looked and look, no part numbers on the block

Only numbers are EA63 (engine designation) and NO 37055M (probably the serial number)

So I added up all the receipts I've saved over the years for this car today.

Total: $36,000

That includes the over $25,000 for the bodywork/paint.

It does NOT include the purchase price of the car (not much) or all the extra things I didn't keep receipts for (Paper towels, disposable gloves, gas money for all things related, etc.).

A year ago I would have said "No way, no way. You over spent". I'm maybe 15% percent of the way into my Nova project and my pocket is going "WTF man?". I feel you, just as everybody else in here who has a project.

You'll find your way again man. Last week, I found a lot more rust and body damage on my Nova last and now have 4 substantial cut and weld projects that must be done in order to do anything else interior or exterior wise with my car. Set me waaaay back on my budget and time line. I considered dumping the project, but then I sat in the car and realized that I've invested too much emotionally and financially to let it go. Also, I can't stomach the idea of some redneck brotard buying her just to turn it into some tubed out dragster, and ruin what I think it should be. Just the same as you wouldn't be able to stomach some tool buying your FF-1 and committing some atrocious act to it.

You broke an important rule. You NEVER add up the receipts of a project car! It'll just make you sick.

I think of it as being less than $9000 a year and it doesn't seem so bad.

And IF you got enjoyment out of it, it's money well spent! And to think some people have nothing to show for their expensive tastes or purchased excitement... You'll have one of the most beautiful FF1's EVER. Quite possibly the most... And car guys shouldn't add up receipts!

Don't worry. We just spent about $40k on a customer's 1973 Saab 95 Wagon doing full mechanical resto, sheet metal etc. No exterior paint work, and no upholstery.

It is likely worth $10k to an avid vintage Saab enthusiast. Maybe 15k after paint and upholstery.

The dollar amounts aren't important. What is important is the enjoyment you get out of it.

I'm hoping to get my hands on one of the rare convertible versions of the otherwise ubiquitous FWD GM A-Body cars so that I can resto-mod it over time. Everyone thinks I'm crazy for this, and maybe I am. But at the end of the day it is something I like the idea of, and not another "me too" automotive project copy pasted from a magazine.

I work at a Subaru Dealership. I'm driving my second Subaru. All of the sales people here own one or more Subaru's. You have our prayers.
