Well, even though I would love to resurrect this SS once you see the pics you will know why, so i've decided it's time to part out to help fund my other builds and give some Legacys a chance at staying on the road for a few more years. The car has 183k on the odometer and i'd still be driving it if it wasn't for massive torque bind draining my gas mileage and the cost of premium to keep it running like it should draining my wallet. Most of the interior pieces were stripped out of the car when I purchased it except for the front bucket seats and dash. Just about everything that's on it is up for grabs except the EJ22T block, front crossmember, and harness at this time. If you are looking for anything specific let me know, make an offer, and we can see about shipping.

I wanted to post this first to legacycentral to give all members a chance at parts before I put it up on Facebook so let me know. Car is located in zip 49855 if you want to estimate shipping costs to you. Would love to see the heads, intake, exhaust be sold together to make an na/T dream come true. I have videos of the car running and driving if needed.

Valance, possibly full trunk, tails, fogs, markers, fog harness and switches? also rear deck if I get the trunk if you still have it. I'll actually be out by detroit in july if you can meet up for it all.

tahiti - PM'ed you.

Someperson - Fogs lights are gone along with the harness, just the rear fog brackets are left. I am pretty much on the opposite side of Michigan from Detroit (8 hour drive) but I do still have times I make it downstate. Contact me closer to when you know you will be around and I can see what's left/what you want.

John

Front passenger door, is it pretty solid? I'd be interested to buy and pay to ship.

Hello Scoobiedoo22 -

It's been a few years and I'm browsing for parts - maybe a 92 turbo wagon auto trans drive shaft

I see you are giving up on a 92 SS, partly due to something described as "torque bind"

I have seen the term used before by others, but have been uncertain about the symptoms

Just from the terminology I think it may be something I experienced some years ago

When turning the steering wheel all the way to lock, while moving slowly, as in a parking lot, it felt like the inside rear wheel was locking up, and skidding thru the turn.

I have an auto tranny.

I did two trans rebuilds, one at an independent trans shop and one at the dealer.

Both found stuff and I tried to fix everything, from worn a rear housing, to even a changeout of my 4.11 limited slip differential - the dealer service tech said his Suby engineer friend swore was the problem.

Nothing Worked !

There is a service manual diagnostic tree which describes the problem, with several solutions, and a trans computer problem as last resort.

I kept mentioning this to the dealer after hundreds of dollars of attempts, then finally found a spare TCM, and changed it.

PROBLEM SOLVED AND NEVER RETURNED !!!

I think something can happen to a trans control module so in a sharp turn, maybe the difference in speeds of the rear wheels, that makes it think there is a slip or loss of traction, and it locks the slow side

So none of the mechanical fixes work, cause there's nothing really wrong except with the interpretation of some kind of message by the computer, which does it's job -

I would not have thought there was any info from the mechanical differential to the computer, but the 1st gen Legacy Turbo Automatic Trans computer is very special - It is independent of the Engine computer, whereas that is not the case for the normally aspirated auto trans computer. Don't know if that applies to other model years

Hope this helps and hope there's a bunch of reply's to this message

Happy New Year and I'm enjoying the rainy for a change So Cal weather - hope the rest of you aren't having it too bad

Larry,

You may be on to something there. I have a few extra TCU's from 4EAT's that I have pulled from mid-to-late 90's Legacys and 2.5 Outbacks...might be worth a try even going against the hard and fast rule that Subaru TCU's should stay with the tranny they are pulled from as in year/make/model but even then the body, brake lines, gas lines, and strut towers aren't going to last much longer on this salt belt diamond thus the partout.

I think the torque bind issue has been covered here and on legacycentral.org and your post adds another great solution to this problem and I would love to see the other members chime in as this could be a much needed fix for so many of the early 4EAT's..I just don't want this post highjacked. I would suggest doing another formal writeup with details and add it to the Drivetrain folder. Who knows, it may get "stickied". As for your auto driveshaft, the best advice always points towards replacing with a new OEM unit as they are not reliably serviceable. Pricey but worth it. Good luck with the build and glad to see you chiming back in to the bbs...I remember a lot of your old posts thinking back even to when we were on Yahoo Groups.

P.S. - My dad was just down in SoCal for Pomona Swap Meet and Arizona for Barrett Jackson and commented on all the rain you guys have been getting, more than he can remember in all his trips down...I'm sure its a much needed blessing so enjoy it.

John

Hey John - WOW - really flattered you remember me and found the post interesting

I will follow your suggestion and copy/paste it to the drivetrain folder

I don't know what stickied and hijacked mean !

I will copy/paste cause I am not able to recall the details, but I'll throw in an extra emphasis that for the BC-BF Turbo Legacy, a BC-BF auto trans computer must (should?) be fitted

I believe those MY91 - MY94 Trans Control Unit part numbers are:

31711 AA821, 31711 AA822, 31711 AB371, 31711 AB372, 31711 AB373, 31711 AB374, 31711 AC051

I'm wanting a driveshaft to enable accurate measurements to be taken by a carbon epoxy driveshaft fabricator

Did your dad pick up a Ford GT or McLaren, or Viper, or what ???

Larry,

Good to see you are still around.

The turbo Legacy & non-turbo Legacy cars both have completely separate TCU's & ECU's. Can you elaborate in the copy & paste post to the drivetrain forum about the differences you are referring to.

Thanks

I have a wish for something nobody else in the world wants - The little plastic engine coolant overflow bottle next to the radiator, with the plastic cap still attached to the bottle with a good lanyard !

Larry,

Sure, I have several laying around and can pick the one that's in the best shape. Don't know if it's worth much by the time I add shipping out to you but I will PM you and we can work out the details.

John
