About 8 years, 50+ shipments, and probably north of 200 parts, I guess that aint so bad.
Question though, related to the '85 Brat motor Im building.
Its an EA81 obviously. I ordered '85 Brat headgaskets. Felpro Permatorque.
Only problem is that they shipped me headgaskets for an EA82
The brat was never available with an ea82, right?
Anyone have the permatorque headgasket number handy for the EA81?

A lot of Supplier's have inaccurate info for the years that the EA81 and EA82 ran together.
No major changes were done to the EA81 engine/body during that time frame, so all gaskets, and what have you, fit properlly

like they all said:
#1 with EA81 (and other subaru's) you have to be very careful in certain years as it gets really confusing. even Subaru gets confused and that's partially why they require VIN numbers to verify, or they won't take responsibility for any mistakes.
i've also seen plenty of rockauto listings that were incorrect - for instance they used to list all sorts of 4 cylinder parts under XT6 stuff, etc. if i'm not positive i check it against other places.

They did send me a bad ea82 wheel bearing once, though.

And no, no factory EA82 brats.
All that said, judging from the pictures and part numbers on there, it looks like the 85 brat listing is correct. 8818PT matches other EA81 cars, and a 94 loyale shows a 9392PT. So maybe they just shipped you the wrong part.... does the part number on the package match your invoice

i do hate that they have stopped carrying alot of parts for the older subies. when i first started using them, they had great selection, now theyve done warehouse closings etc, and alot of the stuff that was previously avail isnt...
