Cambelt installation problems on a subaru legacy 94

I am trying to reinstall my cambelt after i took it off to replace the water pump, being a 94 legacy front wheel drive non-turbo it has two camshaft sprockets and 3 idlers. i can't seem to get the belt to fit on the even if all the idlers are removed.. could the belt have shrunk somehow. is there something that should be moving to releive tension that i have missed??

There is a belt tensioner on the front of the engine block that needs to be taken off and compressed(use a vise if possible) you can use a small allen key or something of similar size to lock piston intoethe compressed position . Then reinstall. I am assuming that the belt routing is correct but the compression of the tension cylinder needs to be done for proper belt tension.

Hello. Replacing the clutch in a 4WD is a pretty big job. Dealerships charge it as a ten hour job. It could take from 8-12. Joe

1993 Subaru Legacy Sedan 2.2 liter engine, has and over heating problem. Replaced thermostat, replaced water pump, and replaced radiator with all new. Still over heating! Any ideas??


Usually the main reason for a Subaru to over heat is a blown head gasket. If it is pushing fluid out through the overflow bottle. I would suspect a blown head gasket.

Cambelt has gone in my 92 legacy, any special tools required to change it? is it a difficult procedure?


1st of all did it go with a bang or just not start? as far as im aware your motor is known as an interferance motor which if it went with a bang its a new motor or scrap the car, valves colliding with pistons. = write off.... but yes i wouldnt bother doing it yourself unless you get someone with ample knowledge, also you will need a universal pulley holder. the cams need to stay aligned while changing, also running off it is a water pump which you should also change, general cost for a full cambelt change is 1100 NZD over here.
