  1. I have a 1980 BRAT with the stock EA71 engine and 4spd trans with stock carb. For now I am looking at just swapping to a EA82 d/r 5 speed an rear diff someday im looking to swap to an EJ22 but I can't find information on if that will even work in my year I am only seeing EJ swaps in 2nd gen BRATs The main thing I am looking for currently is will a EA82 d/r 5 speed fit the engine or will I need adapter plates and different bell housings and what am i looking at for swapping in the rear EA82 diff or should I buy a newer BRAT if I want to change things
  2. Hello...first time doing this, so I will try and do it right!! I work in a small auto shop in the town where I live and we work on a lot of Subarus but I own a 2002 outback legacy with 324000 miles on it...the tranny has been slipping lately and I wanted to change it out...I found one that is 3 hours away from me but it is a 2003 outback legacy... I have both VIN numbers but 3 different Subaru dealers told me 3 different things and a very respected national auto salvage store told me they would sell it as a match. so now I am really confused...the last 8 #'s for the VINS are 27634119 and 37619989. one place told me that the harness could be different and another told me the rear gear ratio's could be different...Can anyone give me a diffinative answer on this.
  3. Look what I got! 89k on it, has been sitting in a container at the junkyard I picked it up from since 1993. Car it came from was an 85 so it was only used for 8 years. High mileage for it's age, but low mileage for me!! The trans in my car is getting pretty bad too so it couldn't be better timing. Anyway, excitement aside, reason for posting; I'm going to be scouring all the threads on how to swap transmissions out, as I've never done one, as well as clutch jobs as I figure I may as well put a new clutch in while it's all apart. I'm figuring I'm going to pull the car up on ramps on all four wheels, that should give me a pretty good working space underneath the car. Do I need to remove the flywheel and have it re-surfaced? Is that advisable? My car has 82k on it. Also, should I go through the trouble of cleaning it up and painting it before installing it? Any tips or things to check on beforehand? I have a lot of questions about how things are going to connect, but I figure as I take my trans out I will see. Glad I've FINALLY found one.
