So, I'm taking a break from swapping my A/C compressor (Thanks, Turbone!), and my eyes spot the NAPA Timing belt Replacement Recommendations booklet. This is what it has to say on the subject of Subarus:

For EA82(T) engines, some handy part Nos.:
NAPA (Victor) Timing Belt Components Kit, No, JV1028 ($56). It includes the cam seals, front crankshaft seal, camshaft seal carrier o-rings, oil pump shaft seal (but not the pump mounting "Mickey Mouse" gasket), and the best part: all of the timing covers gaskets, those convoluted pieces that are always oil-soaked and often nearly impossible to put back on after they've become swollen. This kit is incorrectly described as a "Timing gasket kit", but it includes the seals, too.

Oil pump mounting/reseal kit, Beck-Arnley 039-6320 ($24), comes with oil pump shaft seal, oil pump high-temp o-ring, and most importantly the "Mickey Mouse" pump mounting gasket (see http://usmb.ultimate...=&threadid=3517 for a good pic of how they fail).

Also consider replacing the timing belt tensioners:

Beck-Arnley
024-1008 ($74 list)
024-1046 ($69 list)

The driver's side timing belt also has an idler, as well as a tensioner. I bought the bearing only and replaced it myself (using a couple of big sockets and a bench vise). I don't have the generic brg number here, but I bought a BCA brand brg, their No. 203SS, and it fit perfectly.

The A/C idler bearing is a BCA 202FF

I assure everyone that NAPA timing belts are good to use on the EA82, turbo or not. I use them.

Ive not had any trouble out of any NAPA parts, and BA parts are pretty much the best thing NAPA carries.

Does the EA82 and EA82T use the same belts?

I recommend using Subaru seals. They are superior to Napa or anyone else.

I often use aftermarket belts. The life of the belt depends greatly on installation, new tensioners, if they get oil or water on them. It always seems that I am into the front end of my EA82 Subarus closer to ever 30k miles, for something.

Ive purchased some seals from NAPA, for things such as the transmission and engine....the markings and numbers are the same as the SUBARU units. Appear exactly the same as well.

Things like Ford Chevies and Dodges....they all get this generic brand seals...all plain and cheapo looking. If its something special or specific, like the subaru stuff, or some select Honda/toyota etc engines or trans or diff seals, they will be the same part as what the dealer gets, just in a different box.

I prefer National seals to Chicago Rawhide, and sometimes NAPA sells the CR seals, but it's not a religion with me.

I thought that the recommended mileage figures in NAPA's chart might come in handy.

Yep, those numbers are accurate as well. We should have that in the USRM.

Probably; standard nomenclature. (Old thread, so you aren't likely to get a response from the orginal poster.)

If you have the 2 belts side-by side, the passenger (non-distributor) side is a shorter belt than the driver's side belt.

That's what I needed to know! Thanks Pat!
