I have an 83 ea81 with 4spd. d/r, and want to swap in a 5spd. d/r. I have read though all the threads, seems straight forward.

Here is my question: I have a trans, but need the flywheel, clutch, pressure plate and driveline from an ea82. Will a GL-10 with a high range/push button work as a donor for those parts or do I need to take them from a ea82 with a d/r?:confused:

I don't want to seem like Daddy Warbucks, but I'd put in a new clutch set up while you're at it instead of something used. There's no sense in having to take it all back apart a few thousand miles from now. As to flywheel, I can't give you a definitive answer, but you could have the old one turned down also.

Good call on the clutch...

So are you saying that I can turn down my ea81 flywheel? And use a ea81 clutch (new) and ea81 pressure plate??

all ea82 flywheel clutch setups are the same for 5spd 4wd. so a pushbutton 5spd clutch, flywheel, pressure plate, and driveshaft(you will need a driveshaft) will all fit the same

No, the clutch and pressure plate need to match the tranny, but the flywheel can be turned down to ea82 specs.

Hey Beegeer This is Jerry, if you have the 8 and 7/8 clutch on your subie now then all you need is the clutch disc the disc comes from the 86 5 speed it has a round center hub with 6 springs in it that will fit your EA81 flywheel and pressure plate. You don't need the EA82 flywheel. If you have the small flywheel then find you the large one, if you have any more questions call me 1-509-952-2855 Thanks Jerry

So it looks like there are multiple options to get where I want to go. I have a line on a turbo gl-10 ($100). My reasoning to get this car is the rear disc brakes and coil over shocks. If the flywheel, pressure plate & drive line will swap over for my 5-speed conversion that would be ideal.

Sounds like it will???? :-\ Or maybe I just need a driveline and and new ea82 clutch. I do have the 8 7/8 flywheel...

Thanks for help...
