Crazybonezz, check your fuel pressure, should be 50 psi from the pump or 30 psi within the system 'loop'.

Plugs are not firing on left bank. Replaced dist. wites plugs and the dist. itself

Are you sure its not a fuel issue? If you replaced the Dist cap, Rotor,Wires,Plugs and the main Distributor, spark should not be an issue. Unless the coil isn't producing enough juice to fire all cylinders. I would replace the coil.

My 1988 gl 4 speed with carburator dies when put in nuetral just prior to a stop.

Way more info is needed. Check the fuel filter. Could be plugged just enough to starve at a low idle but gets enough when you have higher rpms. Does it sputter at an idle? Could be so many things, to electrical, including needing the carburetor rebuilt.

that would be a very good place to start, also spark plugs and spark plug wires can cause this. spray the plug wires with water a spray bottle ($1 stores have these), if the engine begings to run rough suspect the plug wires are defective..

Where is the fuel pump located on a 1984 subaru Gl ?

I have a 1984 Gl Wagon 4WD; the fuel pump is located on the passenger side, on the frame rail under the back door, just in front of the rear wheel. It and the fuel filter are accessed by dropping the mounting plate that also serves as a protective plate. Again, this is the 4WD non-turbo EA81 engine GL Wagon; could be different on the 2WD version.
