1997 Legacy Outback Valve cover gaskets issue

Recommended Posts

Hi, the back of the passenger side timing cover wraps around the valve covers a little, seemingly making it impossible to scrape the mating surface of the head clean (I thinks it's the stock DOHC 2.5).

If I need to move the timing cover, how do I do it? I took the front cover off but found no way to move the back cover.

If there is a better way to clean the head mating surface please let me know.  Thanks in advance.

UPDATE - I just wiped them good and clean with a rag and denatured alcohol; I don't imagine scraping would've been a good idea with aluminum, might ding it (unless the scraper was plastic).
