two different mickey mouse gaskets?
Posted 12 September 2005 - 09:34 AM
i just found out yesterday that i got the wrong one. it's slightly bigger and it has a flatter part on one side. i told them i had a 91 loyale when i actually have a 92 loyale (i was thinking of my old car) . i realized my mistake but i let it go because i thought they would be the same anyway. does anyone know if they changed that year or if there were two different oil pumps? or maybe there's an aftermarket one on my car already? who knows?

no both of them are ea82 N.A.
Was your old car a EA and the newer one a EJ?
the current one is a 92 loyale wagon.
and the previous one is a 91 loyale sedan.
the 91 was auto. the 92 is a 5speed.
both of them are 4wd.
i can't figure out how to post a picture of the gaskets here but i got them onto the photo gallery. the photo is named: two different mickey mouse gaskets. sorry but that was the best i could do..
thanks for helping me.

Good luck getting it on. I had a hell of a time getting the m.m. seal to stay in the groove while I put the pump back in. Finally put two tiny dabs of grease on it to hold it.
That's funny too, my m.m. seal was torn in the same place as yours.

I have the sucker in my hand with the Subaru logo on it. You can't go wrong if you order that one.
