Well I'm hoping to get out of this car and into an '88 GL Runabout.


A "Runabout"? Is it a 1988 or a 1908? How many horseless carriages do you possess?

Good job on the timing belt, Tom. I really want to tackle the job myself on the Outback. Don't have a good picture writeup handy, do you?

I don't have a write-up, I could make one if I ever have a day where I think clear enough.

A tip to you with getting the driver side on, is remove the lower tensioner (Its a sprocket) that will allow you enough slack to get the belt over the cam sprocket, that it like the only way to do it, even if you take the hydro tensioner out all the way, you still can't get the belt over the cam sprocket.

I do have a video talking about what I have just said. I will post it in here for you.

ALSO, use those Black binder clips to hold the belt on the cam pully, it will keep them from turning and keep the belt in place.

Jon,

A Runabout is what we call the EA82 coupe when its not an RX. Seems to fit.

Thanks. I am an utter noob when it comes to timing belt jobs. Do the cam gears move when tension is removed? Does the motor need to be retimed? Or do I just take the old belt off and throw the new one on?

All you have to do with the EJ engines is, Take the belt off, turn the crank until the timing mark on it is straight up, then turn both cams so their timing marks are straight up (There is a dot on each cam sprocket and there is also a dot on the crank gear (Not the pully) As long as you make sure everything is pointing straight up while putting the belt on, you will be good.

And yes, the cam sprockets will turn pretty easy without the belt on them, so be careful.

Let me find you that video.

I had some Implaza side lights that I was gonna hook up instead, but didn't want to cut a square hole into the fenders, as they press into it.

What a wongleflute. Haha!


So, I am wondering if that clunk is either the carrier bearing or the rear diff bushing. If the rear diff bushing wears out it will clunk just like that during the same type of movents.

GL blinkers are worse... They're so hidden in the front bumper there's absolutely no way you could see it from the side. I always think about that when I'm turning...

The '85-'86 GLs were better, the blinker was more flush with the bumper vs the new bumper where they are sunken in.

You could rig the orange part of your corner light to flash with the blinkers.

I'm gonna put a dual filament bulb in there and just plain ditch the blinkers when I do a front bumper build.

Interesting that when it happened my clutch stuck to the floor and the car was stuck in 1st gear I don't think its any good anymore other then the sound when letting off the throttle I had no problems with it.


I will be bringing home a 97 outback in a few days so I will have my first hand look of having to open the transmission :D Should be fun I kinda miss working on the Subaru.
