Subaru OEM parts. . .

Post by Coyote »

I just bought a water pump and two thermostats for my '94 2.2l Legacys.

I have read at least two posts on the board that said they all come with gaskets. I'm sure that they did when the posters bought them, but I guess Subaru has changed their tune because mine came WITHOUT gaskets.

I got them from

The water pumps and thermostats never came with gaskets. If you are buying directly from Subaru you will need to buy the gaskets separately.

Some dealers might offer a "package" where they include the pump and gasket together, but that would be a dealer or vendor packaged item and would not have a specific Subaru part number. There may be aftermarket pumps and thermostats that come with gaskets, but again nothing you'd buy directly from Subaru.
