Help: newbee timing belt questions
Posted 08 February 2004 - 09:41 PM
BTW the belts were new 10k mi. ago replaced by a competent subaru mechanic (car has 103k mi.)
Oh, the pass. side belt was still in place when I set it up initially so at least it was still oriented correctly then. Have I now arranged both cams 360d. out of phase with the crank? Do I even know what I'm talking about? Somebody straighten me out wouldya please?
no, it didn't overheat...

On the flex plate there should be a set of timing marks for the cam timing. These are three marks all by themselves; they are not associated with the ignition timing marks. Line-up the middle mark with the pointer. Next look at cam sprockets one should be at 0 degrees the other at 180 degrees. It dose not matter which one is at 0 and which one is at 180.

it is common for a botched job to have the cams 180 off and lined up to TDC rathere than the 3 marks
the 3 marks means that ALL of the pistons are in the MIDDLE of their stroke.
with the open belts like in the pictures, i can knock out a timing belt job in under 20 minutes.
one more thing, the oil or water pumps might as well be serviced at the same time, since its tghe same amount of work to get to them
