man, all this tranny talk....
Does it make you want to come out of the closest?
I'll look up the trans (I mean pants) in my Haynes and see what I see as far as Solenoids go. This kinda blows, Why couldn't it do this last month when it was nice out?

I need to somehow find a cheep 5spd.

You need a bunch more than just the transmission for that swap.
I have one in Maine.... come get it

I know, I need pedel box, ECU, Matching diff, Crossmember. Been there, see it all.
Lol, I always wanted to see the easy coast

I wonder, for the past few days, its been taking a little longer to engage into reverse then before...
So here is something to chew on, a few days ago, when we had a big snow, I notice that it took a little bit for the rear diff to engage, so basically I'd take off in FWD, then it kicked into AWD. Is this a sign of a damaged clutch pack?
Also, I might add, when I first tried to put it into reverse today, the shifter was very hard, and once I got it in reverse, the engine stalled (Like there was a load on it) What would cause this?

That's weird about reverse. Try tightening the reverse band.
I know you can tighten the forward ones from the top (without taking apart the transmission any). But not sure about reverse. It's a tedious process that if you mess it up your transmission falls apart inside... But it made mine work better.

Anyone have anymore info on this? Maybe a picture of a exploided diagram?

You can download the FSM and see it all there. That's what I have. I think there's a post about it in the USRM.

Why would you need 4.44 diffs for a 5speed swap?!
The only 5speed with 4.44 diffs is the forester XT box. You're not going to find one of those cheap, nor do you really want that.
Most transmissions are 4.11, a lot are 3.90, but the majority in your year range are going to be 4.11. Which is good for you, you don't need to deal with the rear end.

Because, if I am going to go through the hassle of pulling the motor/trans, I might as well do what I've been wanting to do, and that is convert the Legacy to a 5spd 4.44
I have access to 4.44 Diffs from '90s 4EAT Outbacks, I also have access to an AWD 5spd 90s Legacy.
That was the plan someday.
