Here are some pics before I put my waterpump on but the waterpump is just a regular EA81 pump.
and even though this one is a little dark

Does it really matter? The engine should still work - hey maybe it has the hydro lifters too? That would be cool if it did.

we have a motor out of a 78 brat that has the water cross-pipe that bolts to the block under the intake. the fat case looked like an ea81.
so it looks like you have the late model hatch motor with the old school ea71 bellhousing.
maybe that's an ea81!(but it would say on th block)
what kind of intake/carb setup does it have. i just notices yesterday that the old ea71 is too narrow for ea81 and ea82 intakes, but the hatch motor had an ea81 intake
i remembered using a water pump off the hatch motor for my ea81, before i knwe of the fat case difference from the older style. before then, i assumed that all ea71 and ea81 parts interchanged.
but if that is a fat case ea71, with the old ea71 bellhousing, then that proves to me that i can use my ea81 with the old ea71 bellhousing in the 78 brat!

When I had that hatch Subaru had different part numbers for the ea71 and ea81 water pumps. The only obvious difference is that the ea71 pump had a black pulley and the ea81 had a green pulley. Maybe there was a difference in pulley diameter or just a difference in the paint color.
