I am getting ready to get the parts for an engine reseal as my 93 Loyale leaks a quite a bit and I will be removing the engine to do the timing belts and clutch.

I wanted to run the list by the experts here to see if I am missing anything:

Camshaft seals
Oils pump seal
Water pump with seal
Front & rear main seals
Oil pan gasket

Is there anything I am missing?

What I would add:

Camshaft seals - you'll want a camshaft seal kit (thepartsbin.com has them) - they come with the shaft seal and the oring behind the cam cap (that holds the seal). do not replace just the seal, replace both.

Valve cover gaskets and grommets

Replace or regrease the timing belt pulleys (there's a thread on how to regrease them in the USRM, but EA82's are cheap - ebay all the way for the timing kits with all new pulleys)

Intake manifold gaskets (just the ones on top of the heads - i just posted a thread with the part numbers). They leak coolant into the cylinders frequently and my personal opinion is it happens more often to motors that have been pulled. Either way, they fail enough that doing them while the motor is out is a good idea. If you do these i'd sick with Subaru gaskets for these.


With the engine out i'd consider resealing the cam carriers. That will require one metal reinforced oring per side at the bottom of the cam towers. The partsbin.com has them for around $2.19 each and subaru usually has them in stock for the same price as well. That's all you need, the perimeter is sealed with tube sealant - Anaerobic is the proper stuff but many people use RTV. If you don't have any oil leakage here then you may be fine.

The next step would be head gaskets...but that's a large can of worms (resurface, valve job, etc) that you might not need.
