I'm looking for the accy pully for a 95 Outback with 2.5L engine. (Pulley and bolt) Anyone have one laying around? Would the one fit off the front of my 89 XT6? (Before it goes to the junk yard?) I need to fix a friends Outback.

Is that common for the pulley to strip like that? Oddly enough, I saw 2 yesterday. This Outback and a 91 Impresa at an auction. Both had the front engine pullies off and key had stripped the hole in the pully identically. (Vehicals from totally different parts of the country.)

It happens all the time. Us 90-94 Legacy guys have horror stories long as your arm...

The problem is that people don't torque down the bolt enough. The Subaru manual calls for 80 ft-lbs I think, but it should really be 110 ft-lbs! :eek: After doing my timing belt, I heard some stories and actually went back and tightened my bolt down even harder, because I'd like to keep my crank from being torn to pieces, thank you very much :)

I'm sorry though, the pulley from your XT6 won't work. The pulley on EA-series engines doesn't touch the key, it only has a little ridge that holds onto the timing belt sprocket.

You might wanna ask in the Marketplace to see if anyone has a spare pulley... Also, try this place for used Subaru parts. www.4subarusuzukikiaparts.com

Thank you for the info. As for the EA engines pully, that would explain one of my last EA82 timing belt capers where I did not remember finding a key connection to the pulley.
