Have a 95' legacy wagon with 185k that has been great. Normal timing belt, water pump, seals, and tensioner were done 7 yrs-30k ago been running great. A few days ago my girlfriend drove to no problems so she says, goes to leave hrs. later wont start. I came down the next day to find the battery dead took battery to charge after returning, tried turning it over very strained from its normal cycle. So I was concerned and started looking around and could see movement in the timing cover. Stopped turning over engine and proceeded to get the vehicle home.
Yesterday I took apart the front cover to find cam pulley blown apart where the retainer ring came apart from the pulley. So tried to bring it to tdc and both cams are off their marks. I am wondering if this engine is shot or maybe salvageble. My thinking is to change the pulley put a new belt on and see if will go. I am not sure how to determine the correct positioning of the cam shafts, the manual I have is not very specific in this area. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
