  1. Ya it doesn't have abs so I'll just take the sensor off. Thanks for the info.
  2. Can the newer style knuckles with the bolt on bearings be swapped with the ones with the pressed in bearing? I have a 96 impreza and I found a set of front knuckles off a 05 legacy cheap and thought it might be a nice upgrade if they fit. I did a search on it and can't find anything on it. Thanks
  3. I have an 02 Forester with 45k miles that has been setting for the last five years in a garage according the previous owner. Well if it was it took a toll on the suspension parts. The body is just about rust free just has two slight bubbles on the rear quarters. Underneath the some of the suspension parts are a little crusty, but the rockers and everything else looks good. I was wondering if I find out the rear subframe is starting to go bad if a subframe from a different year would fit? I have two good ones, one is off a 98 impreza and the other is off a 03 Forester. I believe the interchange says 98-02 Forester but if I can make one of these work it will be great. Thanks
  4. Changed it today. Worked perfectly. Thanks!!!
  5. Thanks for the info. I didn't want to put out any more cash if I have something that will work. Its a new Subaru tensioner was hoping it would work. Thanks
  6. I just picked up a 2002 forester with super low miles 45k and before I put it on the road I was going to change the timing belt, pulleys,water pump etc.. Well before I could change everything, I drove it around the block after I worked on the brakes and the engine started making a terrible noise. Sounded like it was coming out of the timing cover sure enough after getting it apart, started up without the cover on and it was the tensioner making the noise. My question is can I use one of the older style tensioners on the newer engine? I have a new tensioner and tensioner pulley with the bracket that was for my 96 impreza. Can I switch the bracket and use the older style? Thanks in advance
  7. Thanks for the replies. I was kind of figuring that they were interchangable that there would be slight differences. I wish I could hear it run first but for the price I can't complain.
  8. I found a 94 legacy 2.2 with low miles 96k at a local junkyard for a great price. I took a look at it and aside from the intake and sensors being different the engine itself looks the same. According to the interchange it days 90-94 legacy only. I have a 96 impreza outback. What's the difference? Is it better engine or the same? I was just getting as a spare just in case if I had any problems with the one in mine.
  9. That was a lot easier than I thought. The 9v battery worked great to power it up. Thanks imdew. The odometer said 114k not too bad for a 02 H6. Now comes the fun part of pulling the engine in the junkyard.
  10. That's good. I'll try to figure out the wiring tonight. I believe I have a 03 or 04 legacy wiring schematic. Thanks GD
  11. Ya I looked through the glove box and there was no paperwork. The only interesting thing I found was a GPS tracker hidden behind the gauge cluster. I think I have the wiring schematic, I wasn't sure if it was that easy. I thought maybe it was somehow tied into the ecu. I had a Ford about the same year was like that.
  12. Is there a way to check the mileage on the gauge cluster out of the vehicle? The car is 2002 legacy outback. Its at the local u pull and I'm interested in the engine in the car because the car was in such good shape aside from the major accident. I grabbed the gauge cluster figuring there's a way to check it. I got part of the dash wiring also. Thanks for any help.
  13. As a point of reference. I just bought a great running svx engine with 89k on it for $150. I could have bought the rest of the car for $400.
  14. I thought I was going to go and do the ez swap and then a really great deal came up for the eg33. I got one with 89k on it. It's been setting for around 14 yrs. Got it to run on starting fluid for a little while. The only thing I'm lacking for the swap is the exhaust. Not having a truck it was an interesting trip only having a hitch haul.
  15. I was thinking of that too. The ez is somewhat more plentiful in junkyards. I only know of one svx in a yard around me, but there's several llbeans with the ez around. The ez is the more practical swap. Idosubaru where are you located?
