I was changeing shims in a 99 outback yesterday in position is a pain but not imposible took 2 hours to adjust #2#4 ex and intake same deal buddy had mixed up lifters and was ticking and misfire codes on #2#4 so i meshure the clearance do the math and determine the shim to use { have a bin of shims for this] but big diference in how it ran after. I used a small prybar to hold bucket down while i poped shim out and used a magnet to remove it. Making shure the ps in cam arrow was in the right position for addjusting the accoding clys valves

In my case I would just need to work on Cyl 4 in order to be within spec However I don't know if it's the intake or exahust shims I want to say intake however.

Is this going to require another valve gasket change? I JUST replaced them like 3 months ago because the brand I had before were pretty much crap.

 

I have to bring out the manual to see what the spec numbers are. I heard ordering from the dealer is going to take a few days since they don't ever keep them in stock.

took me 20 dead 2.5ds to get 75 shims to make my own shim kitt I always seem to be short on the thiner sizes. Is ok if a bitt loose will make noise but will not hurt anything if to tight problem this will burn valves

Well I'm going to get a free pin for the tensioner, I'm doing the belt on my friend's '02 Forester and I will have a pin to keep just like I kept the clutch alignment tool from my clutch kit.

 

I will have to check the shims when I replace the TB cover for the drivers side

All done, yes it's smoother, not too happy with the ebay belt wear so I'm going to replace that before I make the drive to N.C.

 

 

Anyways here is the old part.

Holy crap you are not going to believe what happened this morning, I was driving along a two lane road coming up to a light and a women and her child decides NOT to cross at the cross walk but between cars, I had no time to clutch in so I just hit the brakes to the point where I almost locked up, so when I eased off and went back on the throttle the car sounded like it was missing bad..

 

Long story short the car died and it sounded like I loss compression (I did) on the passenger side.. turns out the cams for that side must of jumped like 5-10 teeth, I was like WTF... all I can say is it must of been belt slack, I wont rule the rubber gasket that I saw somehow laying on the tooth side of the belt right near the crank sprocket..

 

I heard no odd sounds other then the lack of compression because the cams were off, I'm glad I had my tools with me, When I put the belt back on for just getting home I have some crazy rough idle, again 1 & 3 I might of been off again since I was more in a rush to get out of meter parking, just glad I was on level ground and it took almost no effort to get the car moving off the main road.

 

So I just ordered a Gates timing belt on Amazon using my prime membership :D which will be here tomorrow

 

 

it could of been far worse.. the longest part was having to walk to home depot because I left my other C-clamp at home... :(
