Default Carb 84/85 QuestionNEW GUY, FIRST SUBARU

just boght my first two subarus today hoping to get one runable car out of them

One is a 1984 GL sedan
the other a 1985 stationwagon GL

Question are these carbs swapable?

Are the doors swapable? they look like it but would like confirmation before unbolting them

THANKS and I look forward to owning and working on my first forigen cars and SUBARU I am a FORD guy by birth, blood and choice but I have been watching people drive there little Subarus around here for years and the math seems right
4wheel drive 4 banger VS V8 350HP 4x4 I think I could fil up the subaru 4 times to one time filing up the truck and get double or triple the milage to boot

Hmmmm well that all depends...

If the 84 sedan was made in late 84 (therefore making it an early 85) parts will probably be swappable

However I am guessing that they are the 2 distinct body styles known as Gen 2 for the 84 and Gen 3 for the 85.

Both cars should use some sort of Hitachi carb, but to the best of my knowledge they are not changable.

I would really suggest getting a Weber carb for the car that needs a carb. The doors probably wont swap either unless they both happen to be the same generation.

From what you said here is what I think each car looks like:

84 Sedan

85 Wagon

http://usmb.net/albums/album78/1985_f.sized.jpg

If that is indeed what they both look like then they do have some parts that will swap, but body panels and carbs really arent any of them.

It seems like I refer everyone here, but its a great place to find out more info about old school subarus... www.ultimatesubaru.net

Does anyone know of a CHEAP place to get a carb for the 84 Sedan GL? I tried JC whitney but they want $250. Or does any one on here rebuild carbs could I mail it to you? The shop here wants $200 to rebuild it I live in AK so prices are crazy if some one wold rebuild it for 50 plus parts I would mail it to you?

Just get a Weber carb. you can get one in a junkyard for $25-50 usually and then just get a rebuild kit for it. The adapter and air cleaner will set you back another $40 or so. You can buy a new setup for like $350, but you still need to tinker sometimes to make it all fit right.

Well see this is were life gets intresting when you live in Alaska. There are NO junk yards in the twon where I live and being you can only fly or take a boat out of here you can't even drive to one so things get a little tricky that is why I bought two non runing subarus thinking I could make one of them work but I also know I should have checked compatablity before I proceeded with this great idea. Thanks for all the info though. I'll see what I can find online
