Default Body parts swapable?? 84 to 85

I have a 1985 Stationwagon GL Subaru manufacture date 01/85
Vin: JF2AN53B8FE438004

and a

1984 Sedan GL manufacture date 2/84
Vin: JF2AB53B3EF218349

Are the doors off of these swapable?
Are the engines? (Both have 1.8L and look exactly alike)
Carb??? ( even if I have ask that before I still have not found any number on either carb to go off of is there a way to do it with the Vin)

2 of 84 and 1 of 85 should be distinctly different body styles.

The engines look the same from the air cleaner, but look at the location of the distributor and whether or not they have the black timing belt covers in front.

My bet:

the 84 has no belts, and a disty up in front

The 85 should have black timing belt covers and the disty on the drivers side head (on the rear of it)

Also the 84 should have a blue (or maybe red?) air cleaner assembly and the 85 should have a black one.

Thats my bet.

But they ARE interchangable kinda... people have swapped the engines before, but it takes some tinkering to get an "EA81" into and"EA82 vehicle" or the other way around.

In case you dont know:

Ea81 = what I think is in the 84, its pushrod
EA82 = what i think is in the 85, its SOHC

You really shold list your location.. It would help a lot with questions like this.. For example.. if you are in Australia, the EA82 bodystyle began in 84.. which would mean your parts are intechangeable.. if you are in the US, then what flowmaster says is true.. basically the stuff is not interchangeable.
