Because the output to the front diff is high on the gearbox did you section the crossmember to get clearance?

Gday Mackaymanx. No looking at it for an hour or so moving motor up down in out it looks like we wi have about 2 cms clearance we have a syncro already fitted with an ej20 so we are setting motor to its height & it seems to give that much. the front diff we turned upside down & turned rear cover over so drain plugs are at bottom. What Iam looking for if anyone has an idea is some form of dog box 1 to 1 to use in tailshaft as a decoupler type setup.

Hey Ernie the really early Subie boxes (EA I think) had selectable 4wd in the center diff housing.
It may be possible to adapt that setup to the Syncro project...but I don't know why anyone would do it.

Millions of Subarus around the world with constant all wheel drive - they seem to get good fuel economy and go forever with their stock setup. I reckon the decoupler is old skool technology that has little merit in a modern drivetrain.

Gday All thats what Iam trying to covince the owner of. he had a decoupler fitted to sncro box & believes he needs it on subi. I just have to sort out fitting it after that he can do what pleases him. but I think once he drives it he will change hie mind
