@ a1fa,

I like you're style! I have a '90 Syncro that I'm mostly rebuilding with Subie 2.5l about to go in it. What kind of new engine are you getting?

Next maybe: high front fender, new seat/pad, hand warmers, HID light, kick starter? Aw crap, I just found ProCycle.us's TW page and my wish list just got a LOT longer.

An Astro 2WD will get 20 mpg. But as one owner put it "a 2wd astro will get stuck on its own turd" I am sticking with the AWD. And yes, an AWD will get 18mpg...but only at 55 with no side, tail or headwind. I once almost ran out of gas from Columbus to Casper...because of the wind.

Gotta love the air-cooled mills! When they water-cooled it they made it go from bomb-proof to POS instantly. What king of power increase do you expect you might get?

Not much, if nothing at all over stock. I think my rings are shot, and compression is weak with lots of valve issues on the current engine. I will have stock + a bit more, but with bigger valves I am expecting to have better cooling, and therefore longer life.

Decided to have a go at getting the wipers working today, what with the rain coming down

Found a guide online, took out the various fresh air tubing etc, removed the wiper motor and mechanism. Followed the guide, taking off the levers from the spindles, cleaning everything up and then regressing before re-assembly (although I haven't touched the actual motor yet.

Tested the wipers on both speeds without the levers attached to the spindles (so, in essence, the wipers wouldn't move, just the levers) and the levers worked fine, moving at both speeds without a problem.

Attach the levers to the spindles, re-connect power and try the wipers again - nothing, all I can hear is the whine of the motor, no movement on the spindles or levers

Old vehicles, you have to love them, dontcha?

One would think that a plumber knows how to fix a leak.
I’ll probably get shit for posting that on that board.
