I have a 1992 Legacy Wagon and am trying to find a compatible one from a donor car in a wrecking yard. When I got to the wrecking yard I found several Legacy's there. One was a 1991 Wagon but it had 267K on it so I wasn't so keen on it so I didn't write it down but the other one was a 1991 with a vin # of JF2BC67C3MH601589. The Transmission code on the same Vehicle is TZ102ZJ1AA. The code on my vehicle is TZ102ZA2AA. According to the information below, it would seem that both would be compatible, excluding the differential component of the equation which I will address in another Thread.
" some magic to read your transmission id."
1234567890 <-- place in TIN (transmission identification number)
tz102zj3aa <-- my AT
ty752vj1aa <-- my 5 speed MT
2: A=2wd AT, M=2wd MT, Z=Full Time 4wd AT, Y=Full Time 4wd MT
3&4: distance between gears
5: 2=series code
6: A=2wd 4at, R=2wd 5f(75 distance between gear),
V=full time 4wds/R(center diff & viscuss type)
Z=full time 4wdd/R(Multi Plate Type)
7: A=2200cc EMPI, J=2200cc TURBO
8: 1=1990, 2=1991, 3=1993, 4=1994, 5=1995, 6=1996
9&0: no meaning
