You kniked one of the composite gear when you were changing the HG.
seen this before. MOST IMPORTANT :: did the values hit the pistons.
Replace all four gears and check ALL the other idlers, water pump belt contact point.
MAKE sure the crank gear reluctor arms are not bent.
that is if the values are not bent from piston contact.
good luck !!! if you have to pull the motor apart then use the new redesigned head gaskets. subaru # 11044AA610A they take care of the HG problem.
These gasket came out from Subaru 3/09
search for my last post about these new style HG's.
AAA theshop Subaru repair designed them over 3 years ago, and they fix the HG failure problem.
our Alaska 98 OBW has had a set of them for 2 1/2 years ago. THANKS KURT !!! owner AAA theshop subaru ONLY repair.. (Anchorage, Alaska)

Nice failed attempt at advertising a rip off Subaru shop. Place sells parts that legally they arent allowed to sell (like used cat converters) Triple A Subaru did not come up with the newly designed head gaskets that are used on the EJ25D. GM has been using that exact style of head gaskets for 10 years, subaru borrowed GM's idea.
anyhow back to the posters question. Replace the gear that is broken, slap a new belt on it crank and see if it'll start. If it doesnt, or if it does but has a big misfire you'll need to compression test to it narrow down what cylinders have the lower compression because the valves are bent.

LMFAO.. thats funny that car isnt the fastest car in Alaska. The Grizzly is. Get your facts straight. I've worked on many cars that came from AAA and its some shady ************. bolts left out, hose clamps missing on fuel lines, intake's RTV'd on instead of using a gasket, thermostats put in backwards.
Why dont you stop advertising a half assed shops on the forums? The way you carry yourself on here almost tells me you are getting paid by them to advertise. I work on these cars for a living, guarantee I've worked on prolly 10x more of these than you can dream of.
And the Diesel doctor? Oh you mean the shop that tried to weld a friend of mine's 6.2L diesel starter to the bellhousing when they snapped off a starter bolt installing it? yeah that great shop. Now get over your self, ur not that great

What now? I thought we were fighting about the fastest car in Alaska.

Yeah, took the cam cover off, it's the journal closest to the rear of the engine that seized. I plan to take the head off today to see if I can find something in the oil passage. I did a compression test on passenger side, seems to be OK but will repeat once I put the timing belt back on. I have another head to install, so owner just wants me to install that and wrap this up. Oil level in engine is fine, so like others on the post mentioned, I'm thinking something plugged the tiny hole that lubes that back journal. I'll post updates once I know for sure.
I've done (3) 2.2L conversions so far, they go pretty well and are better motors, get better gas mileage too. Yes, a few less ponies, but not too bad really. I'm a 2.2L fan, what can I say...
You got a good deal on that car, you have room to budge either way costwise. Way to go!

Yeah, if it were my car I'd fix the motor you got. With only 130K, you should have lot's of life left. Replace both head gaskets too (I assume you know about the HG issues with these 2.5L, and about what gaskets to use or not to use...). You know about the rear seperator plate too, etc? If not, just ask. Also, check the valve adjustment, and if you need different shims let me know as I have a few of these (and 16 more now too:-)
Posted 05 December 2009 - 08:49 PM
(ie HGs) but as for what type of gaskets to use, or what the separator plate are I'm not sure.
