I hate to keep bothering you folks but I was wondering if someone could tell me if this trans would fit into my subaru? I have a 1984 subaru gl with automatic 4wd. This subaru has a 5 speed dual range trans. Will I be able to put it in mine? Thanks

Is your's the same body shape? if so, then yes. If it's the earlier one, it can be made to fit, but I don't think it's a bolt in swap.

BTW, as a newbie, you may not realise that 1984 was when Subaru changed bodyshells. So if you're going to ask for help, you need to clarify whether you've got the earlier shape or the later one like in your link. There was a GL model in both bodystyles. While some parts are interchangable, others are radically different.

 

It will help people to help you. ;)

yes it will fit. Does your subaru look like the one you posted or is yours more rounded?If it looks like yours then its a straight bolt in deal.If its more rounded then you have to take a die grinder or a file to the bottom of your bellhousing because that transmission uses a flywheel that is slightly larger than yours(filing take about 5 minutes with a file or a couple of seconds with a grinder,its not bad at all.

For both body styles(round or square) you will need the axles from that car as well as the rear diff.

Automatic/ subarus have a 25 spline front axle spline count while manual cars have a 23 spline axle.Also turbo/automatic cars got a 3.7 rear diff ratio while the non turbo manual cars got a 3.9 rear ratio.Hope that helps.
