Default Cylinder numbering

What's the Forester's cylinder numbering scheme?

I can't say because I don't know. One would think so but you never know about other specs from different parts of the world. And I don't know how much different the 2.0 motors compare to 2.5 motors. ALL DATA access I have is only limited to USDM vehicles. I bet someone from your region could verify from service manual.

Thanks for your post from long ago bbottomley. This information, though basic stuff will continue to be very useful for years to come from people like me, new to Subies. I am converting mine to run on Propane which will halve my fuel costs and I need to know stuff like this.
....................my next poser is where to pick up the rev counter signal from. I think it might be from one of the spark plug head ignition coils on a poke-it-and-see basis.

Cylinder numbering has been the same on all Subaru flat 4's I have owned.

Looking from the top, from the front of the vehicle, you can see the side to side cylinders are offset. The right side ( left as standing in the front ) are closer to the radiator. Using this as a guide, start with that cylinder as number 1.

The next one back is on the other side, left ( right as standing in the front ), that is number 2 .... next back is 3, and finally 4 is the rearmost.

This is also true on the H6 ..... closest to the front in number 1 .... and so on.

Always has worked for me .... in over 30 years as a Subaru owner.

I have now removed/replaced the inlet manifold and replaced all the electrical plugs and rubber tubes. I have added propane injectors to the manifold, and connected them to the propane solenoids. It runs fine. I have two questions:
1) Why have I got two bolts left over? I presume this is mandatory when you take a
Japanese car apart- there are lots of bits that Ford wouldn't have put on in the first place.
2) Why were the engine management, skid logo and cruise lights on when I re-started the engine?

It doesn't really matter - my near neighbour has a Blue Point engine fault diagnoser and he just switched off these lights. Oh for the days of points, condensers, distributor caps, HT leads, carburettors with jets you could remove and poke a blunt knitting needle through...... You could fix those engines. And they used the same amount of gasoline as these new fangled emission controlled fancy things. I just discovered that my Forester doesn't even have a throttle cable. Aaaaarrrrgh. With a broken throttle cable in the middle of nowhere you could just get a bit of old fence wire from the side of the road and rig it up to get you home. Now you need to carry a computer with you just to remove silly indicator lights that are wrong anyway.
