Transmission swap 5MT from 98 LGT to 01 Forester
Posted 29 August 2010 - 06:55 PM
1998 LGT: TY752V2DAA
2001 Forester: TY755VC1BA
Any help on this would be awesome!
Also, I've never opened a trans or worked on one, but would it be better/easier to repair the one in it? I don't mind doing the work and learning how to, but the $300 fix sounds easier to me...

1) Make sure the final drive is the same for both tranmissions.
2) Some subbies have push type and some have pull type clutch forks. Verify the 2 are the same.
3) Swap your speed sensor.
You may also want to sign up at http://www.subaruforester.org/ and place a wanted ad. There are a few people on there that have done 6 speed swaps, so that may be good place to look. Come to think of it though, I believe they may all be XT guys. I believe your car should have a 4.44 final gear.
I am no expert when it comes to mt's in subbies. I own 3 with 4EAT's, but I spend WAY too much time reading these forums, so I am just trying to pass on the info I've picked up.

Edit: The only other thing I can think of is whether the have the same axle output styles. I believe it is sometimes referred to as innie vs outey stub axles.

if they're the same golden, if not then you probably just install the one int he current trans into the "new" trans.
a used trans is how i would also fix this, sounds like the right track to me.
not sure what an "LGT" is, can you clarify that? if it's a GT then it should be a hydraulic clutch, not a cable. really doesn't matter a ton as the clutch cable parts should transfer over - just swap the fork and ball under it i believe. with almost 300,000 miles probably a good idea to get that fork out of there anyway, they do occassionally fail.
the inner/outer won't be an issue in 2001.
