Does anyone know if a broken timing belt is an immediate disaster or is there sufficient valve piston clearance to avoid bent valves in the 1.2i engine? I was just beginning to love the car too! Thanks guys

ON the timing belt issue....
The P.O. had the belt break on him and he replaced it himself. I want to do this now, as I have oil leaking from the cam shaft, perhaps the crankshaft. Is this a DYI job??? Pretty plain and simple to keep the gears lined up or make sure they're properly positioned when putting the new belt on??
I received a little feedback from before, but not much. Another question...does the leaking oil within the timing cover, soak the belt pretty good? I'd imagine this reduces the life of the belt, yes?? -Adam

Hello guys, I have discovered that the belt is still intact, but the crankshaft pulley is rotating on the crankshaft. I guess the woodruff key has given up and that the pulley is beyond repair. Anyone know where I can get a new one, or if the same part is fitted to any othe subaru engines? Am I right that it has 18 teeth?

It wasn't the sprocket or the crank at all, just the belt which had lost teeth and the toothless part was around the crank.. Should have diagnosed more carefully before I started to worry with a Subaru
Simplee: Could someone tell me where the interiorlight switches are located on the doors? I mean those which turn the light on when you open the door.(1992 Justy)

Machy_CZ: Hi, did anyone tried to cut down springs for lowering purposes ? I found here some lowered justy's, but no info huw much and where to cut the springs... Thanks
Jan 22, 2015 17:57:56 GMT -5
pinkshinyalan: I've cut springs on other cars before. You basically just need to look at how much you want to lower the car, and cut about that much off. Make sure you do the same amount on both sides. It's usually easiest to just count the number of coils.
Jan 24, 2015 5:11:03 GMT -5
pinkshinyalan: I don't know what the perches are like on the Justy, but it'll need to accept a spring that's cut. If both perches are flat, you'll need to find a way to support the cut coil spring.

Dominik: really stupid question here. Does the 94 justy GL have a low fuel level light or only the dial?
Jan 25, 2015 13:16:05 GMT -5
Mato393 (at school): Machy make a profile here and send me PM... And I have some broken springs from my 87 justy (2 front and one rear) if you watnt try it before destroing yours I can lend them to you (I might need them later when buing new...)
Jan 26, 2015 7:01:49 GMT -5
Mato393 (at school): Dominik I think don't have it but I think It could be maded if you have some electical skills... I might try to make something like that one day, It is nice idea...
