HI guys,
Kind of a bone head question, but I am new to engine re-builds and front end re-seals on the 2.2s. I am swapping motors in my 95 Legacy and it was suggested to me to replace the cam o-rings. As I was taking out and installing the new cam seals I did not see where the o-rings are located. Necessary to pull cam to get to them??

One is behind a little hunk of metal behind the cam seal on the drivers side front. The aluminum piece that holds the cam sensor comes off, the O ring is behind it.

Pass side is in the BACK. 2 bolts hold the plate in place - kinda looks like a boomerang. The old one will be hard, very hard. This "cover" can take some "finesse" to get back in.
