Question about Cars & Trucks
The left and right pulleys are Camshaft pulleys. The small one in the middle is the crankshaft pulley.
All three need to be lined up. They all have their own marks/notches.
I'm guessing you're not lined up and your cam is jumping.
CHANGE THE WATER PUMP TOO!

You have attempted a very difficult task without a service manual! First of all, there are precise timing marks on each cogged gear that have to STAY on those marks. There are tensioners that will keep the belt on those marks as you tense them up. Please do not start the engine unless the marks are perfectly aligned or you will surely damage the engine!!! Get the service manual, if you do not have it already!!!

Agree totally with what Leigh said. The pulley in question is the camshaft sprocket.` It "jumps" without the belt on because it has to open valves as it turns to next position.
Yes, find the procedure for timing belt installation, so you know where to set the sprockets or cogs on. Mark on the sprocket with mark on the block or back of timing cover. Cannot stress the importance enough of a repair manual. Just as Leigh said, I wanted to only support that.

i had this problem with mine if your cable spins wen the car is moving its not the gear box end or the cable its the speed sensor in the speedo its self its very easy to fix you have to strip the speedo out of the case the sensor is only small and on the under side of the speedo the sensor is about 50 mm long and 10 mm wide change that and it should be ok
oh remember to reset your ecu

I bought a 1995wrx turbo japanese import 260bhp standard,which can only run on v-power 99octane fuel,from scooby clinic in chesterfield (scooby race tune expert mechanics).I was the first person in england to test drive on road (it had not long arrived in the uk & had been put on rolling road a few times),whilst test driving,the turbo boosted normal & then started juddering slightly etc etc,i asked scooby lad "what was that" he wasnt sure(office boy!) & assured me that whatever it was theyre top mechanics would sort it out & do a full service,change the belts etc etc, ...so i bought it,luckily with a 30 day warranty included starting from collecting it.I picked it up about a week later,i got as far as 20mile away(nearly home) & it started juddering again,nothing too serious,so i thought we'll see how we go.next day same again,after 3days it were juddering more visciously,getting worse to the point where i nearly hit the windscreen,i thought its got to be a fuel blockage?.it backfired twice & not long after that packed up & would not start again,i foned scooby clinic & towed car back up to chesterfield.they kept saying "i must of put wrong fuel in",they ended up taking engine out cos head gaskets had blown,engine had died,6-7 wks later they told me to come & collect car with no charge,i was told to run it in for 500 miles steadily,& then take it back,they then changed oil,sparplugs & boosted turbo back up(re-connected it),the boss apologised to me & said if he knew it were like that he would never have sold it at all to anyone,he explained that the engine was carboned up(blocked) they did a nearly full engne re-build free of charge.the boss said if he knew it were blocked up they would of gave it a thrashing to clear the engine.

If you have any of the large chain auto parts stores in your area, call them and ask if they do free scans; most do.
If Subaru has maintained the same procedures for a while, and you have checked fluids, etc., you can try resetting the light via the ignition switch:
-Turn on the ignition (don't start) - switch it rapidly between the 'ignition on' and 'ignition off' positions three times.
If the error has cleared itself (not uncommon), the check light will reset. If the problem is still present, it will either stay or come back on.
Our Su has done this a couple of times and with the scanner we have on hand, there was never any particular repeated problem. Just a computer glitch/hiccough -
