SOURCE: timing belt on 1996 subaru legacy 2.5L

There is a belt tensioner that you need to collapse and put a small nail or I use a pop rivet to hold the tensioner off while I align the timing belt. Then remove the rivet or nail to allow the tensioner to work. Good luck, take your time and have a good day.

I fouled up the timing on my 1990 Subaru Legacy Wagon. Tried resetting it to the factory specs but it still wont start.

You have not set it to the factory spec, and its probably 180 degrees off. Rotate the crank to top dead center (the mark on the crank toothed pulley, align the cam timing marks, refit the belt THEN release the tensioner. Rotate the engine manually to verify that all the timing marks realign themselves.

How do u set timing on a 1990 subaru legacy.

Not easy but if you have a understanding of reading the haynes manual for this car it will tell you how to do it. I had to replace the water pump and the timming belt had to be removed. I did it for the first time ever by myself i remember couting the exact number of belt notches on the left and right side of the center crankpully notch , crank pully and right and left cams must be at top dead center. Belt only cost about $35.00.

1990 SUBARU LEGACY problems

Check for water in spark plug tubes, ign. wire connector ends & coil pack for corrosion.
All marks go up, the crankshaft sprocket has an arrow that you don't use! if you position the crank sprocket where the key way is down you'll notice that the sprockect has a timing mark at the top of one of the sensor pickup teeth, use that. Here is a rough home made pic. I hope this pic made it, no conformation that it did.
