Subaru 1.8L Leone Sedan needs part 2 run...

Hallo, i have a 1987 Subaru Leone 1.8L with BIG problem: it will not start. i've checked everything in the ignition system, and i MEAN everything, from the coil, wires, plugs, and a little part that i'm assuming is a capacitor because of the markings on it:
'' 250V. DC 0.47 uF 6Z07's either a 6 or 8, can't tell...

I've looked online for the part, and haven't found anything so far.

... This must be subaru's one fatal flaw when they were designing the ignition system...

if anyone knows any online retailer that sells this part (or something compatibly close), i'm all ears, cuz i need this part really bad...

or if they have something that'll directly replace the stock ignition...

sorry if it's too much to handle.

but , uh, yea...

Plz & Thank U...

    ...I forgot to add that i want to keep it for as long as possible, cause over here in hawaii it's just as rare as seeing a ferrari around here to see a car as old as mine, especally subarus. Also, since i cannot find the part, would it be possible to just get a capacitor from a radio shack, same type,
    and just use that, along with an optional resister?

The reason I'm doing this to return a favor from a person helped me when I was at college years.

While you are waiting for the part, you can do something further to check out.
When you said you checked everything listed in your notes, I assumed you have spark.

1-If not then make a pulse on off at the primary coil to have spark at secondary coil connecting to a spark plug. If you could not make sparks when make pulses on off at the primary then the problem is not at your Cap parts.
2- If you have sparks, spray some fuel in the intake manifold
3- If your engin turns on then die, you don't nee the cap part, You need to check out your Fual regulator and your fuel pump.
4- If your engine never turns on then die, keep searching for the Cap part.

1987 subaru carburator problems

You need to hone the accelerator pump well and adjust the throw of the pump rod as much as possible to get more fuel. Of course that is just a guess based on 100's of rebuilds i have done over the years. I have also found that Japanese carbs seldom turn out when rebuilt.

first check the timing belt because it may be broke.Another solution could be a clogged catalytic converter.It really sounds like a timing belt.Remove inspection cover for the timing belt and have someone turn over the motor and see if your camshaft is turning.

I got a 99 Subaru Legacy 2.2L Sedan. Recently hit and deer and blew head gaskets, overheated motor and had to replace. Everything starts smooth but when the car heats up, it acts like it's not getting gas....

I think you need to check your fuel pressure. If it's not between 41 & 45psi, you need to replace the fuel regulator. OBD doesn't always give the exact response to enable acurate diagnosis. Try this anyway, get back if still a problem.

Hi, I just bought a tired Subaru Leone (1990) Station Wagon. Everything feels OK for the age of the car... but it accelerates like a boat. The engine seems great and isn't miss-firing. The clutch bites...

I think you`ve answered your own question.
The clutch sounds as though its on its last legs.
I would take it down to a local car mechanic ask him for a verdict on the clutch and anything else that needs doing.Remember you don`t have to take his offer,we are in the day and age of haggling.
Once its up and running subarus are so reliable a good choice of car.

Gasket of head for subaru leone

When the head gasket is changed, is the head resurfaced to make certain it is flat? Has anyone checked the block to make certain it is flat as well? Has the head been pressure tested to mak ecertain there is not a crack? That is what I would be looking at in your situation.
Hope this helps.
