Question about 1994 Subaru Legacy Outdoor
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.
