'89 Loyal Timing belt alignment - engine already pulled
Posted 28 September 2005 - 05:48 PM
Can I change the timing belts on a 1.8 FI while the engine is out of the car? I've already pulled the engine. The instructions in the book says to line up timing marks on the flywheel. And since the engine's out of the car, I can't do that procedure. Suggestions?
Thanks so much for any ideas!

Is there any way to get original factory service instructions to do the timing belt change on a '89 1.8 Subaru? I've never done a change where there are two timing belts and my Hayne's manual doesn't give me enough information to give me confidence.
I think this is the one you have to put the one belt on, then rotate the crankshaft a whole turn, and then put the other one on... At least on my '85 EA82 it was. The chilton's does mention this if you read carefully (I didn't, and it ran like crap on two cylinders......). If you follow directions well, it's not as difficult as it seems at first.

The key on the crank gear points down
That's really cool. I did not know that.

I'll be honest with you. I think I'm more afraid of this timing belt issue than I need to be, but the fact that I've never done an engine with 2 timing belts makes me uncomfortable and I can't quite make sense out of the instructions I do have. Thanks, PW
I can email you the engine section of the 89 FSM in two parts if you want.
