Default New GC8 Owner Looking For Guidance

Hello All,

I just bought a 1993 JDM Impreza WRX GC8. The car is 90% (rough estimate on my part) stock to include the paint, though the dude that had it before me put these terrible camo decals on it. As far as I know it only has had the following done to it:
- Turbo-Back STI Exhaust
- Turbo Timer
- Boost Gauge
- Aftermarket suspension

Other than that its all stock (to my knowledge). Im super excited as it will be old enough for to import back to the states when I go back.

Since I've bought it, I have replaced the rear brakes (pads and rotors) and parking brake.

I do have a problem with the windshield washer fluid pump. It just doesn't work. Ive done everything I can think of to fix it and I cant even get spray when I disconnect the lines. Any idea where I can find a replacement or suitable substitute?

I've been lurking around this website and forums and I am real excited to have stumbled across this car.

Congrats let's get some pictures! I have a 93 WRX RA myself, I really love this first series of classic Impreza. You also probably have the famous closed-deck block.

If it doesn't work at all I would check the fuse first and also make sure the pump is plugged in and connector/wiring looks good.
