December 6th, pulled the front end off to swap over painted hood, bumber and fenders. Ghetto, but on its way.

3:30

4:15


Then after dinner I went back in and installed the pre-painted hood, fenders and bumper.

Yeah its and Ebay special.
Never owned an Impreza, but I have owned a 1976-78 and 79!

So close to turning it over tonight. But the lack of 4.5 quarts of oil slowed me down.

Yes, 2.5 DOHC intake.

Well... Started it up. Smooth as butter! Backed it up and added water. Sweet!

Then added power steering fluid (ATF) as i had swapped pumps.....

POW! Off shoots the pressurized side. Tighten it up and POW off it shoots again. Well, there is a reason the pressurized side is a single hard line. I had had to cut and modify the pressure side and "hope" my bandaid held. Not a chance. Have to see what I can do to connect the two metal lines.

Made it down to Oil Filter Service and they built/adapted my two sections of line together for $44! Thanks guys!

Installed it, filled up the powersteering pump/resevoir and away I went up and down Woodstock to set the rings. And boy am I happy!

Runs the best off the bat of ANY of my builds. No weird noises, no weird smells, no obvious leaks. I do need to add some fuel @ idle I think, but I can't find my laptop power cord right now.

But its up and running!

Still running really well.

Weird mystery noise on cold start up. And it is especially annoying because you can hear it IN the car, but as soon as you open the door, it gets drowned out. But it does not seem to have affected anything.

And I have done a little body work, look in Post 2

Hows that ebay clutch feel? Be honest! A few of us have bought it and had the funky pedal feel due to the pressure plate fulcrum being wrong. Does it feel like your pedal goes past the point of max resistance, and gets easier to push that last 1-1.5" to the floor?

Its a Valeo brand pressure plate.

I had to adjust the cable, but other than that, it feels perfect. I can't bog it off the line of course because its a 6 puck, but i can put-put around @ 1 mph if I keep the revs up a tad.

Good to know. The blue paint screams of the infamous "F1" clutch sold by, among other places, Grip_Force on ebay......Mine is also stamped Valeo, but had the funky pedal feel that caused issues with my foot lifting off the pedal during launches. It would hesitate and then "kick" me. It developed shudder as well....even cable actuated. I yanked it for an ACT, but I hope yours holds up better.

On topic....Nice build! You must be having a ton of fun in the "sleeper" cars!!!!!

I only use 6-pucks as there does not seem to be an upgrade that is worth its while that is "street" and full face.
