Identifying engine without paying

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by othelloperrello, Aug 3, 2006.

  1. Hoping someone can help me with this question on my 1988 Subaru DL
    wagon.
    Been frustrated working on the engine to be getting all the wrong
    parts, and finally came to the conclusion that someone must have
    swapped the engine somewhere along the line. What I am trying to find
    out is how can I determine which engine I now have? It's an EA-82,
    fine, but I'm trying to find out what it came from, if possible, how
    old it is, how many miles it could have on it, etc, but above all I
    WANT TO BE ABLE TO GET THE RIGHT PARTS THE FIRST TIME.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

  2. Rick or ? may be able to help here - but I think it's a good idea to
    also post this in the appropriate forum at www.usmb.net . Those guys are
    great at keeping older soobs running. Might be worth contacting Jamie
    through www.subarugenuineparts.com too.

  4. Hm... usmb.net domain has been "suspended". Guess I'll keep trying on
    that, but thanks anyway.
