3speed auto to 5speed D/R Conversion
Posted 04 May 2004 - 06:10 PM
I am a new member who just bought my first Subaru. Had no no clue these things were so awsome. After purchasing an 86' GL10 Wagon, 3speed auto, I searched the web for info on building an all terrain commuter and found what I really need is a 5speed D/R. Also am studying your site as it's full of amazing information. Now have basic knowledge on doing the "Swap".
Last weekend I had the amazing luck to purchase 3 GL10 wagon parts cars and more amazingly they're all 5speed D/R. I am starting the conversion this weekend but could really use your vast knowledge. Out of the following parts cars, which tranny/driveshaft/rear diff combo would be most compatable for the swap or are they all compatable?
1. 85 GL10 5sp D/R
2. 86 GL10 5sp D/R TBI (no motor)
3. 87 GL10 5sp D/R Turbo (no motor

Damn - wish you were a little closer. I would help you with the swap in exchange for that 85 D/R.... ah well.

Great info!. I will use it this weekend for "The Swap". I'm sure you saved me a lot of frustration.
