1. Remove timing belt outer cover.
2. If the belt timing is incorrect, loosen the belt tensioner adjustment screw.Place camshaft belt tension adjusting tool T74P-6254-A on the tension spring rollpin and retract the belt tensioner. Tighten the adjustment screw to hold the tensioner in the retracted position.
3. Remove the crankshaft pulley and belt guide.
4. Position the crankshaft and the camshaftsprokets so that the timing marks index with the timing pointers.
5. Remove the distributor cap and set the distributor rotor to the number 1 firing position by turning the auxiliary shaft.
6. Install the timing belt over the crankshaft sproket and the counter clockwise over the auxiliary and camshaft sprockets.
7. Loosen the tensioner adjustment bolt and allow the tensioner to move against the belt. To ensure the belt does not jump time during rotation, remove the spark plugs.
8. Rotate the crankshaft two complete turns in normal rotation to remove the slack from the belt.Tighten the tensioner adjustment and pivot bolts to specifications.
The special tool in numer 2 is unneccesary. Find a way to compress the tensioner then lock it in place by tightening the bolt. The crank pulley has to come off to see the sprocket. There are obvious marks in the sprockets and the timing pointers should be, too. Lining up the rotor to the #1 plug wire is very important.
Most important, actually verify that the belt has skipped time before you remove it. If it has, replace it and inspect the idler pulley.

Why Off Topic? Isn't that what we have Non Soob Cars and Bikes Discussion for?
Sorry I can't help with your problem. Good luck with it.
Because I forgot about that other forum. :-p
The main point was to get it out of the old gen subaru section.

1st step is to rotate engine to TDC #1 cylinder and check that all of the timing marks align. There's a rubber plug in the belt cover for checking the cam position. All marks should be at their position and disty pointing to #1.
It's been a long time since I've done one of these engines. I'm not real sure on how you see the marks for the auxilary shaft, and the book doesn't say.
Remove the spark plugs to make it easier to rotate the engine, and never turn one of them backwards as that can cause belt to slip. If the belt has slipped, get a new one. Never use one that has jumped as it won't hold and will do it again.

Thanks for all the help.

On the lighter note the cam and crank are in sync right now. i just need to figure out which way to turn "the mystery sproket" and where the alignment marks are....

Take the distributor cap off and turn the aux shaft until the rotor points at number 1 terminal. That's it.
