'83 wagon, 4-speed Dual Range.

Question/opinion: Does the whole "hash-marked" part of the dipstick represent a quart? Pint? Something else?

I know the capacity of the whole xmission, but I don't really need that. I'm just interested in how much fluid it takes to move the level on the dipstick a certain distance (like, say, 1/4 inch).

Thanks

Thanks Rob. My '83 FSM probably says the same thing as yours.

I managed to find my long ago misplaced copy of "...Subaru Alive" (thought it was gone forever), and in the "Check trans and diff oil" chapter, it answers perfectly and in detail.

Page 74, Chapter 7, procedure 2, step 2: Check Transmission and Differential Oil.

Now I know what I'm looking at. :)
