What is firing order on ea-81T?

Recommended Posts

if you can rotate the crank by hand, try to get Cyl#1 at TDC... then look at the disty, and make sure the rotor is pointing at Cyl #1. That will let you know if the disty is correct.


have you verified to make sure your getting a strong spark at the plugs?

I'd be willing to bet that all 4cyl Subarus (boxers) have the same firing order. I worked it out one time, and there are only two physically possible firing orders for a horizontally opposed 4 cylinder engine:

1-3-2-4 and its reverse 1-4-2-3.


Anything else would require all of the pistons to move the same direction at the same time, and that would NOT make for a very smooth engine!!
