    Forester Abs Ring

    Essentially yes but you will be desturbing inner and outer bearing races and you know what subaru wheel bearings are like. You will still need press/puller to assemble/dismantle as well. Hammers will just fubar contact surfaces.

    Forester Abs Ring

    Sounds like abs ring is of the type that fits on to back of hub as appossed to driveshaft type, in which case you will probably be best ordering wheel bearing too as flange wheel studs attach too needs pulling/pressing off to fit abs ring. Second hand hub time possibly as i once broke an abs ring and think it was a good price from dealers.

    Setting Shims In The Gearbox?

    Yes you right final drives need to match and you obviously understand that. My concerns would be mating ty752 crown and pinion with ty754 driven gears, paul blamire would be one to ask on that. Ty754 sti gears are slightly bigger but they are all old gears at the end of the day and metal fatigue will play apart. At the back of my mind i have something about ty754 first catching ty752 casing.

    Setting Shims In The Gearbox?

    Your mixing and matching two different phases of gearbox parts, ty752 and ty754, i dont know about compatability. Be interesting to know how you get on. In fact iiirc you may have to grind case. Did you get reverse idler too? I would just of whacked a fifth gear set on you existing shafts and be done tbh. Will check the codes to see ratios later.

    Setting Shims In The Gearbox?

    bit confused. 1st 2nd are part of main input shaft so you have put complete type r primary+secondary shafts+front diff into your bare casing if im reading it right. Was type r gearing from ty752 box? Thought type r /ra gearing was the same but maybe early ones are different. What was original gearbox code?

    Setting Shims In The Gearbox?

    Id imagine it will be call to lawrence of kemnay with you providing part numbers as i wouldnt trust them. Why are you adjusting preload and backlash? I thought it was only fifth broken. Gasket spacers are infront of fifth and if you are changing front diff side seal, why not mark position before unscrewing. You would be advised to order new sake nuts as well, i know graham goode do them, and add a spot of stud lock for good measure.

    Should This Be In My Ra Gearbox?

    Top one is dccd. Outside looks a bit shiney though like its been spinning. Has it got a hoop on it at the back as that leaves it free to rock a bit in casing but not rotate. The wires should have brace on transfer case top plate then pass through it. Bottom drop gear has secondary set of splines on dccd equiped units. If your fitting viscous unit you will need to use wrx drop gears....just switch entire tail end. Have uk fifth gear set, complete wrx front case ( gearset) and rear diff sitting a few miles away from you if any use.

    Whats In The Packet?

    Bonnet tilt kit.
  9. Looks nice in black lewis. What are you liking about 6 speed? ive read 6 speed is very close to ra/r gearset 1st to 4th. What box do you have in ra again?

    Front end has engine weight over it, backing up a drive will slightly increase that effect. Hence why it can be slightly better to reverse a front wheel drive car up a drive in snow.

    What Made You Get A Subaru?

    Brought up in them even back in 1800gl days. Sold by farm machinery dealers and exceptionally well priced for 4wd vehicle. A reasonably steep farm road meant nothing but 4wd would cut it in winter. My dad once came home in 70s and only got escort 1/2 of the way up the road, said f it i will dig it out after tea, only to return belly full and car had moved its self all the way down across a fairly main road and parked it self half way down the next field. No point in myself buying a car thats impracticle in winter and by this time a certain gentleman that liked holding scottish flag out his window whilst donutting had came along, so there was no dithering.

    What Oil

    No oil will fix it only mask it. I used to run syntrax religiously but made switch to redline lightweight shockproof a few years ago. This did eventually mask a tiny snick i had going into fourth at high rpm. However i find its hugely better on a cold morning and smoother changes in all other conditions too. I will not be going back to syntrax.
