My 2001 outback has manual transmission. Original
Not fitting is the issue, not the Cold Cranking Amps. You want the most CCA you can get in the size that fits. What CCA means is you have more power to crank the car longer before the battery dies.
New batteries need to be charged (the parts store should make sure of that) before installation or else you could/maybe/possibly overload the alternator. Once the battery is fully charged it makes no difference to the alternator because you are still using the same amount of power but from a larger battery capacity.
That being said if someone installed a 550CCA battery (that fit) into your car instead of the 420CCA and didn't tell you, you would never know it. The 550CCA is just a heavier dutier battery.

2001 subaru outback headlight not working
chapmnfarm: your head lights use a "2" fuse system.
one for the left and one for the right.
The fuse box you are looking for is under the hood on the passenger's side. It is a black box roughly 8 inches long and 4-5 inches wide. When you remove the cover, you will see fuses and relays. What you are looking for is the section in the box which has a cluster of 7 fuses. 3 in one row and 4 in the other. On the outer parameter are two relays. The fuses you are interested in are located in the row of 4 fuses, with the two closest to the "L" shaped part of the box. Both of those should be 15 amp fuses.
The fuse below those should be a 20 amp which is the lighting switch and the one below it is a 15 amp which is for the interior lights and the clock.
Check your harness grounds in the engine compartment near the area you have the problem. There are ground wires which come out of the harness on both sides of the core support. The wires are black in color and have "EYES" crimped onto the ends of the wires. Both of them will probably be located about 4-6 inches below the upper tie bar on each side of the radiator. Odds are that the eyes will be large enough to pass a 6mm bolt through.
I hope what I have given you will resolve your problem. Lem me know,,good luck>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
