Thanks in advance,

the old peugeot wheels are the only other 4-lug with the same pattern... they're sometimes tricky to find, but they're out there... look on the For Sale forum or post your needs on the Wanted forum... you can also get some chevy, toyota, or nissan 6-lug wheels and drill some extra holes in them to make them fit your hubs... instructions for that are on here somewhere too...
lots of good info in the USRM, and the search feature...

If its a manual the push button operates the same mechanisim as a d/r box does for 4wd only without a lever (uses vacuum).
I would also Look into swaping a D/R trans. in it too. The push button clutch will last for about 10 mins if you go offroad.
But yes, the dual range gearbox will help a lot offroad and is probably more important then bigger wheels, tires or a lift.

Thanks for all your help,

It's a 5 spd. manual trans. Since I am an avid surf fisherman, most of my off-roading will consist of driving on flat sand surfaces. I definetly need the ground clearance & the larger tires to keep the under carriage out of the sand. After I test drive it on the beach, I'll see if I feel it needs the D/R swap. How difficult is the swap? Will it pretty much drop right in or is there a lot involved?
Thanks for all your help,
The linkage is the only thing you'll have to mess with other than that the axles and everything else should fit right in, no problem. you may need the clutch kit and fly wheel from the D/R .

What are you asking for it ? Any pics?
Sorry, thought I put a link to the for sale forum in my post. Here's the pics I have up and the post in the for sale forum is is titled "Blow out Sale"
Car has typical mid west rust but is a great driver. $800 takes it away.

The EA81 is completely different engine, used in the early 80s in what is known as the 2nd generation Subaru. These were equipped with a 4 speed dual range transmission. Not all, but alot.
They are the "roundier" more attractive ones.
That's just my opinion though.
The EA81s are a pushrod engine and the camshaft is timed/driven using gears, whereas the EA82s are overhead cam, and timed/driven using timing belts. There are many other differences, but this is the principle one.
Your Loyale is what would be known as a 3rd generation, or EA82.
Thusly, you would want to find a 5 speed dual range transmission from a 1985-1989 Subaru of some sort.
