source4bearings4 T belt idler pulleys???

Recommended Posts

I'd like to get new bearing and have them pressed into a couple of my idler pulleys (96 DOHC 2.5 OB)....especially the toothed idler...I bet this sucker is costly

Went to car quest..they looked up he bearing numbers I gave them and said no good


Also....is 1st subaru still in existence? I thought they sold OEM parts about 10% over cost.

Someone said there is a difference between the website and calling in (differing prices)

your best bet would be to get the numbers off the face of the pulleys and any bearing supply house can match those numbers with the correct bearings.


if i were you i'd get an entire set of used pulleys. i'm sure there are plenty lying around, i have some from a 2.5 SOHC sitting somewhere. post in the parts wanted forum or find a junkyard that has a bad motor. or go to a pull it yourself yard and get a set of old pulleys. get these all rebuilt that way you have new pulleys ready to go when you do the timing belt job.
