I am in the process of doing the timing belt job on my 93 Impreza EJ18. I would like to replace all the seals and o rings.
Questions
1) How do I remove cam shaft? I read the manual and it says I need a cam shaft holder tool?
2) Do I need to use sealant around oil pump o ring? Or just the new o ring will be fine?
3) How do I remove the crankshaft, camshaft seals without damage anythings? Can I use a flat screw driver?
4) How do I align all the marks? Don't really want to spend all day turning the crankshaft.
Thanks a lot!!!

1) You mean camshaft sprocket. In my case I use a chain vise grip to hold the crank pulley and the camshafts sprockets with a piece of old drive belt to protect the crank pulley and a piece of the old cam belt to protect the sprockets. It's cheap, permits you to work with both hands (you set the grips - just tight enoug - and let the handle rest on something solid: the alt for the crank pulley and an idler pulley when you remove the cam sprockets.
2) Just a little oil on the O ring will be fine.
3) I used a flat screwdriver (on the advice of a mechanic at the dealer). You insert it between the soft lip and the shaft axle going slightly away from the shaft (not to mar it) and then push downward on the handle catching the outer edge of the seal from the inside. Be careful and everything will be fine.
4) Go there for info on marks alignment. It's for a 2.2L, but I presume it's the same for your engine. In doubt buy a cheap Haynes manual.

Good luck!
