The manual reads 39-46 ft. lbs.
That's for the general subaru legacy.
I would need the motor size to be EXACT, but these numbers are most common

What to do with my subaru legacy's transmission fluid leak

You don't say if its manual or Auto? I'll pretend its auto and ask if the oil is coming from the join between the trans housing and the engine. If it is then the torque converter shaft seal is failing. This is a job for a knowledgeable person and a trans removal. If its at a drive shaft point, again its a job for a mech. If you give us a bit more in detail maybe we can help. Its an old car and if its done 100k plus miles then its about time for seal failures.

1996 subaru legacy wagon 2.2 AWD leaking tranny fluid out of bell housing. Transmission lines not leaking. Assume it's coming off of the shaft on the torque converter. What seals could be leaking? & can...

I'm not sure about what gasket to check, but I've always left my manual tranny's connected to the transaxles and removed the axles at the transaxle. This made simpler by popping the ball joints out, thus allowing the hub assembly to swing away. Hope this helps.
