A bit more progress...Cylinders look good enough, cross hatching visible. Apparently my straight edge is M.I.A., so cant check that yet...I suspect a 5 year old has been chopping blackberries with it. One cam bolt decided to strip its edges, tapped on a 3/8 and hit it while turning popped it off thankfully.
Now it's slow time....my valve compressor got lost in the mail, waiting for confirmation.
That's good though, I Need to do some homework.
That's the 76 gl1000 motor I should do something with...a buggy/sounds fun...
How are their DOJ and CV joints and boots now? I had '78 Brat and '80 hatchback and wagon. Did a total of a dozen axle jobs on them. In general, I found that period Subies pretty poor quality even though we loved the 4WD.
Daughter has a '12 Suzuki SX4 CVT AWD now and it has been good for her but watching out for what she'll need next.
I took a 78 Brat to Cleveland in 82. It was flawless. Four years later I had replaced the front fenders and associated brackets, fasteners and the headlight pods four times. It eventually rusted to the point that I sent it to scrap. I loved that little truck, easy to drive, park and generally a fun ride.
