...any way atleast this isnt an interference motor so thats cool ...
My Country have been "Shaking" with minor EarthQuake`s Replicas... that along Non-Stopin` Rains, didn`t let me Work on my Subie earlier.
But the Last Weekend I Worked on my Subie with Great Results!!!
First after a Deep Clean up the Engine, I Started to set the Correct Ignition Timing, before install the New Timin` Belts, Tensioneers and Covers. (The Old Covers were Worn and in very Bad Shape after 24 Years and over 270K Miles of use so Far since 1985)
This is a Picture of some Parts of my Subie`s New Timin` Kit:
I Noticed that the Recent New Subaru Parts Comes in Plain White Boxes, while the Old Times New Parts came in Blue & White Printed with the Subaru Logo Boxes... Well, the economy... but That Doesn`t matter.
Even some Parts came Without a Box!
Well, I Started from Square One: First I did Set the "Upper Dead Point" (I Don`t Know the Right Translation for That, But I Hope that You`ll Understand) in Cyl one, then all across the Engine... I Noticed that my Subie`s engine Timin` was Very Bad, to the Point that I Needed to Take Off the Disty and Reset the Timing Again.
After That, I did Set all the Timing Again, with the Only Help of the Great MilesFox Timin` Belts Procedure Manual, as Seen on the USRM; Thank you, MilesFox!
Then I Installed the New Timin` Belts + Tensioneers & Covers, also Replaced the Worn 5/8" Hose at 90º (that was the Cause of the Water / Coolant Leak) along with New Clamps...
I Really Dislike that Hose`s Place Design... but it Could be Worse: Recently I Helped someone to Change the Sparkplugs on his Mitsubishi Eclipse V6... Oh my God! ... You need to take off the Intake to do That! ... ... Now I Love even More my Subie`s Engine Design...
