I remember that's a guy on here that has a viscous center diff from a legacy in his loyale, WITH dual range, and with the 4.111 gears...or either it was an 87~89 wagon.

It's dark blue with 15" pugs on it.

I used search...no success.

The guy goes by Beefaru.

The issue has been brought up before, and he's not sure how it all worked...a subaru mechanic put the box together for that car.

If you do find something out, PLEASE let me know. A 4.11:1 ratio in a d/r 5 speed would be THE BOMB for my setup.

Cook, thanks.

I am 100% sure the 4.111 and 4.444 ring/pinion are direct drop ins...but I dont care about that. I want the center diff conversion information.

Right on, so this would be 1st hand info. Are the R&P the same for the RX box and the GL D/R box? Any body? (can't tell I'm desperate can ya?:-p )

i think the pinons are different on some. I need some parts books and stuff to look at.

either way, the phase 1&1.5 boxes are VERY simlar overall in design with the RX and other S/R FT4WD boxes.

The ring gears are interchangable. The pinion shafts are not. The problem is from the factory these are a matched set and are curved to one another. Swapping is doable but you need to keep in mind that the gears might not mesh together initially causing the trans to whine and they could wear out prematurely. But really, who cares! I just swapped out the stub axles on my RX Box so this is fresh in my mind.

I'm hoping that a couple of very close fluid changes with some sort of high pressure trannie fluid additive will deal with the meshing issues. If all goes well then I'll be ordering the 4.44's next week.
