How to put timing belt back on after you just replaced both heads

Recommended Posts

it's no different than installing a timing belt any other time. is there something confusing you or different about it than normal? what exactly are you wondering?

 

i would search here or look for johncegglestons(?spelling) user name, he has the endwrench articles posted in his signature.

 

endwrench is Subaru's internet supplied direction, it's all you need.

I have never put a timing belt on before I have work on cars with timing chains back in the day but not a car with timing belts.

Yeah just search for links to those endwrench articles, they're fantastic. Straight from Subaru with pictures and all. Search button is up a bit in that line of header options. Click on advanced search - select the new gen forum and search for timing belt.

 

Good luck, they're straight forward and fairly simple, but they are an interference engine so want to get them right!

if i can do it....

 

it not that hard, make sure to use the correct crank sprocket timing mark. when you are using the correct one, the crank sprocket keyway will be down in the 6 o'clock position.

 

dual cams are a little trickier, but i don't think the '01 legacy has dual cams.
