[HD] '90 Subaru Loyale Water Pump Replacement
I posted a video a few days ago of coolant leaking from my engine. I
replaced the gasket, and no luck. Concluded that my water pump was the
problem, so I just installed my old pump from my old engine, since I know
that it was working. This is why OEM Japanese parts work better than a
cheap aftermarket part.
There are two things I forgot to mention. First, you need to remove the
outer timing belt cover to get to the water pump bolts. And two, if you
have air conditioning, you'll have to remove/move the compressor too.
Pretty simple of a job. Takes me about an hour, then 24 hours to let the
RTV cure. Oh, and you have to wait a few days for the dealership to get the

Video of my 1987 Subaru AWD coupe. Now 26 years old Subaru and it really
looks like a new example. No restauration, it just had a very carefull
first owner (and second also ;)
Enjoy the video and please take a vieuw at the end of the video were you

[HD] '90 Subaru Loyale Shift Linkage Replacement
Sorry for the black screen at the end. Random rendering glitch, I assume.
My shifter in my car used to suck. It was really hard to find fifth and
reverse, first and second gear looked like third and fourth, and there was
lots of play in the shifter when in gear. The answer? My shifter bushings
were shot. I went to the junkyard and just took the entire shift linkage
out of a car with good bushings. Definitely was worth it, since my shifter
feels great now.

Subaru GL Snow Plow
Me in my 1986 Subaru GL, I refer to her as "Molly Mountain Goat". Today im
plowing 8" of fresh, heavy, wet snow, without much trouble. She can do
anything, go anywhere, and now I've outfitted her with a custom made plow,
and winch setup.
