Hi guys,

Have recently bought my first Subaru here in New Zealand. From what I've read on Wikipedia, they changed the names for different markets, so I may have a rebadged Leone or Loyale. I'm really not sure, so I was hoping some of the experts here may be able to help.

 

One of the problems I've encountered with this car is getting parts for it. If I go into an autoparts store and give them the exact model and even the numberplate to do the lookups off, every part that gets ordered in is wrong. When I ordered HT leads, they were far to short. Tried to order a distributor cap but the one that corresponds to my model in the parts book they use is a clip on, not screw in like mine.

 

So I went to a Subaru wreckers, they gave me a cap that looked exactly the same, Hitachi and all, even off another Omega. But the width between the screw holes is 2mm too short, so it doesn't fit. As you can see in the pictures, the cap is in need of desperate replacement.

 

I've seen dizzy caps on American websites, and I am hoping that if someone here can figure out what the equivelant of this car is in the American market, I may be able to buy one that will fit, using the make/model/year search on a site like this: http://www.partsgeek...cap/subaru.html

 

I've included some pictures of the car, and the # of the distributor itself is this:

22100AA450

D4P86-01-A8206

 

A wreckers told me the last part (A8206) is a manufacture number or something, and is not important?

 

Would love to know what you guys think, I'm in a bit of a pickle otherwise!

 

Cheers,

Logan

 

PS: The car is running rough, hence me trying to eliminate the problem by replacing all the little things (spark plugs, HT leads, dizzy cap). If the cap isn't at fault, my next though it the fuel injection. If anyone has any input regarding fuel injection on this model, please speak up :)

Should be a Loyale, As far as I know the Leones never received the Multipoint fuel injection systems. But I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong!

Not a Loyale. American equivalent looks like a GL Coupe, or possibly and RX. Either way, it you order a cap a rotor for an American 89 RX, non turbo MPFI, you should get the right one.

Thanks guys, I'll give an RX cap a go. Just have to wait for the shipping darn it!

 

The reason I'm replacing the cap is because the car is running really rough. I've checked the timing, replaced plugs, new HT leads, checked vacuum lines.

Is there anything else I should check before I get into the injectors? And would anyone be willing to sell me an injector if they have a spare?

you want 87-89 GL, l series, or leone its not an rx, as those are turbo. the only thing you need to make sure is whether your cap is a screw on or clamp on. 86-94 is all pretty much interchangeable on most everything. usually order parts for after 86, as you might get parts for an EA81 instead of EA82

Ooh thanks for the heads up mate. Luckily I'm not too trigger happy with my ordering ^_^

Looks like the leone gt ones we have ere in finland. We do have the multipoint injection EA82 in our leones so they did use that engine in them too. 

 

I had the same problem as you with the distributor cap. I first got a 2mm too small one that should have fitted to my EA82T. There sees to be two options with screw connection. One has a 85mm diameter and the other one has 87mm diameter. I can check the part number of my cap if I can still find it within today.

I couldn't remember if the RX came non-turbo. Thanks for the correction!

So here's a photo of my distributor cap. It's not original but it is branded as ossca and has part number 22162-01B01 in it.

It is 87mm in diameter (2mm more than the commonly used one) and my disty does not have vacuum in it. Seems to me that it's more

commonly used in nissan car's. And yes ths one has screw connection inf someone is asking that.
