if you use the correct marks and place them at 12 oclock, it will be right. if you use marks on the belt which have the wrong tooth count if will end up wrong. something's off, redo the belt.
i don't know why subaru has the arrows on the sprockets since i have never heard of someone using them to rebuild or repair an engine, but i only know what i read here.
welcome to the world of subaru.

seriously, do not use arrows. its all just the hash marks/tick marks, no arrows at all.
There are articles that talk of the arrows, and those articles are misleading, again.
Maybe you are not using the correct crank mark?
You will get it. At least that is a non-interference motor.

the "correct" timing marks will not work.
wanna bet!! just kidding, no offense intended. we get this all the time. a couple of weeks ago a guy on here with several thousand posts made the same mistake. it's easy to do.
look at the pics and make sure you are using the correct marks on all 3 sprockets. once you have put it back together to test run it, it's impossible to check the crank mark unless you pull the pulley and timing belt cover.
the crank mark is not on the face of the sprocket, it's on one of the reluctors, (tabs) on the rear edge of the sprocket. it's a hash mark, a line on the tab, like the cam sprocket marks. and the keyway is in the 6 oclock position.
keep at it , you'll get it.
PS: make sure you torque it to spec (search or ask), or it will loosen and kill the crank keyway, sorta common.

OK your guys are the masters and I am an IDIOT!!!!:lol:.I was using the wrong crank mark, I was using the mark on the outside of the sprocket not the inside, The key way at 6 o'clock was my ticket thanks for that. I re did it at it purrs like a kitten. My neighbor said it has never ran this smooth so I have you guys to thank:):). Thank you very much no I can rest easy tonight.Just glad it wasn't post 97 interference.
i should have made that bet.
congrats on your success.
so, now all you want to work on are subarus, right? or are you going back to the dark side?
