camshaft sprocket alignment for timing belt change
Posted 02 November 2007 - 08:05 PM
1) Should I reinstall the way the belts came out? Belts never snapped, but I've always felt the car was a bit sluggish, possibly because the cams were 90 degrees out of phase instead of 180 degrees?
2) Install everything according to the instructions on the post and trash the chiltons manual for almost making me do the job twice:mad:

If one timing mark is up the other must be down. Anything else, and the timing is wrong. And that would make it run crummy.

if you did remove it, line up the timing after the belts are on

Why would anyone remove the disty to do a T-belt job?
Might have done more than just t-belts;)

And F--K Chilton too!
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that!
I had one years ago, that came with one of the Subies I bought - the only thing it was good for was that it helped me figure out what years were interchangable.
