Unhappy Part needed for my XT

I'm not having any luck on the USMB, does anyone have an extra 80's Soob Hill-Holder valve sitting around? My XT's valve is working fine, but leaking brake fluid, and is the reason air got in my system and why I almost ran a stop sign into 9AM traffic a couple weeks ago

There are plenty of XT's here in portland.... but I dont know what the valve looks like, or how to do ANYTHING related to the brake system

Can you clue me in?? (maybe I can snag it if its simpler than removing the whole master cyl)

Hey Mike! I'm actually Michael myself

It's pretty easy, I pulled my old one in 15 minutes... It's bolted to the body right below the master cylinder, it has the cable attached to it from the clutch fork, identified by the big spring on it...

First, before you pull it, feel underneath it for any fluid, I want a non-leaking one PULEEZ!!!

Just undo all the brake hoses off of it, there are 3 total, the one going to the back, you'll hafta go under the car to get to the rear one I'm afraid , then unbolt the cable mounting on the valve, then the bolt that attaches the cable to the actual valve. Now that everything is off, take the two bolts out that mount it to the body. I would take two extensions together and put them on your wrench so you can ratchet your wrench above the engine... Then just take it out!

The beautiful part is the car is not needed immediately, time is of no issue

Sounds like a bet to me

Ok I'll hold off on pulling any parts yet. Just shoot me a PM if you need me to go try my hand at getting one.

Update: I got a valve from somebody, but it was worse than my old one!

So I have decided to buy a rebuilt one from CCR engines. It's better than any junkyard one, but I won't get reamed outta $300 at the dealer

Try www.car-parts.com
My son has 3 Subarus of various kinds and years, and I have found all kinds of parts for his cars when he's needed it.

I got a rebuilt Hill-Holder valve from Roo-builders at CCR engines. It cost me $78, rush-shipped to my house. Works great!

My opinion is that a junkyard part is only a temporary fix. Eventually, it will fail, and if you want the problem to go away for good, replace it with a new one or at least professionally rebuilt...

Now heres the question; Is the bottom end for a subaru XT 4wd Turbo the same as an ordinary 1800cc engine as the big ends have gone in my xt turbo?

If you are asking if the engine block from a carbed/SPFI block is the same as your turbo block the answer is no. The compression ratio is different. There is one person running around with a turboed carb block, no explosion yet, but I would personally stick with a turbo block.

Have a Nice Day? Another Question!

Another question- is the XT Turbo 1800 block off my 1988 XT, the same as the 1800 turbo block from a Subura Estate 4x4 of the same age as my XT Turbo, because i haave found one quite cheap.

Regards Graham

Yes it is. The engine you have is an EA82T, which are pretty much all the same.

Good luck restoring a VERY rare example of a XT in the UK

Just watch the rust, especially in the trunk. Also, you know how you have the cool telescopic steering wheel? Use it sparingly, overuse has been known to cause the bright light switch to go haywire, dunno why

Also feel free to join the XT6 forum, XT 4cyl's are just as welcome as 6's there...

Okay Old-School pplz...

I need another part. I need EA82 front and rear timing covers on the passenger side of the engine. I posted on the USMB but no one seems to be responding.

TIA

Its really hard to find these not stripped out

Next time I am junkyarding I may try to grab a set, but most of the time when I do I end up braking them because the bolts keep stripping out.

Yes but...

Be prepared for your timing belts to last shorter than normal

Alot of dirt and stuff can get in there and make the belt fatigue faster. Its ok for a while, but the covers are a good idea.

I'll see if I can get to a yard on Monday for you

Mike, I think MilesFox has got some for me, so don't run off to the yard unless it's for yourself.

And you do know one single foreign particle can get in the area of the timing belts and instantaneously break them, or screw up the sprockets, etc etc. Subaru's belts are too close to the ground to be doing that.

no, I don't think so. and even if it does, how much easier is it to repair? not to mention you can do it on the side of teh road SO much easier.
