A couple photos of the block before I split it this weekend, and then hot tank it next week at the shop:

Looks like I might need plus sized pistons...

As far as I know, no. I was thinking boring + honing with plus sized pistons.

Correct, the sleeves are cast in the block when the block is made.

Very nice work :tu:

There was (or maybe still is) a similar vintage Subaru for sale outside VG Autopaints down Blacktown, Sydney way a couple of years ago. It had been sitting there a very long time. Not sure if it was one of these models but I seem to remember it being a Subaru. Looked like a complete solid car, not sure who owns it but it was parked somewhere out the front of the businesses there under a tree. Someone may want to drive down and see if its still there, would be worth saving !

Front spacers (courtesy RenaissanceMan once again) installed :)

I obviously need longer studs though...

I just read through the whole thread and I have to say I am very impressed. This little Soobie definitely found the right owner.

As for the paint, how about a couple of stripes over the top of the car? Maybe even offset stripes.

I've tried some variations of stripes in photoshop, but so far the only thing I might do will be some vinyl stripes after the paint job is done possibly down the side of the car along the body line (as seen on several older "race-preped" FF-1's ive found pics of). But thats about all i'd probably do.

Alright, time for a nice new shiny update...

Couple weeks ago, I got a message about this post over on the XT forum:

http://subaruxt.com/forum/viewtopic.php ... 4f4eaa1e7d

Turns out, a 1971/72 FF-1 showed up in a junkyard in PA! (albiet apparently it rear-ended something)

Luckily, MPtyza volunteered (along with a few dineros) to remove a few parts from that car for me!!!

Image

That might not look like much, but that was the first round of parts he's sending me. ALL of those parts are things that were either broken or missing from my car! :D

He also managed to pull the cylinder heads off of the EA62 (1300) motor, which are as far as I know, practically the same as the EA63 4-port heads (the EA63 supposedly is just a bored out EA62). Here is a pic of the head next to the EA63 single-port heads I have, note how the valves are the same size:

Image

So today, I got the heads together with the shortblock and mocked it all up:

Image
Image
Image
Image

Also note that the bell housing has been "modified" by Rennaisanceman over on USMB in order to better fit the EA71 case! (Extra material was added to make sure it will seal properly, which was something I was concerned about).

Now indeed there is a coolant passage issue:

Image

HOWEVER, I also discovered that the Weber manifold is too short... Which is going to be a HUGE problem :(

The good news is that the driver side window and transmission case from the other car are on the way as well, so I should have everything I need in order to complete this car shortly!

How much too short is the manifold? Sound like a perfect excuse to shave the heads and block to up the compression!
