Hello;
When the head gasket is changed, is the head resurfaced to make certain it is flat? Has anyone checked the block to make certain it is flat as well? Has the head been pressure tested to mak ecertain there is not a crack? That is what I would be looking at in your situation.
Hope this helps.
Thanks;

Hi, I just bought a tired Subaru Leone (1990) Station Wagon. Everything feels OK for the age of the car... but it accelerates like a boat. The engine seems great and isn't miss-firing. The clutch bites...


I think you`ve answered your own question.
The clutch sounds as though its on its last legs.
I would take it down to a local car mechanic ask him for a verdict on the clutch and anything else that needs doing.Remember you don`t have to take his offer,we are in the day and age of haggling.
Once its up and running subarus are so reliable a good choice of car.

Both head gaskets have to be replaced and the heads need to be resurfaced, be sure you go thru the torque specs and sequence correctly, it is a strange process, but has to be done. subaru puts out a product called cooling system conditioner, it's advised to install this.

Overheating


Multiple causes for overheating. Start with thermostat.

I had an overheating problem in my Subaru that ended up being a head gasket (I replaced thermostat and radiator, but these did not help). It turned out that the head gasekt leak was allowing air into water passages that prevented water circulation in the engine.

Cam timing


I received this explanation for the 1800 Subaru Leone (same vehicle i think) from another forum. Have yet to make use of it but I hope it helps.

Find top dead centre of Crankshaft. (there are 3 timing marks close together, the middle one is TDC). If you are still unsure then remove number one spark plug and insert a long small screw driver down the hole with the piston near the top of it's stroke. As you rock the engine over back and forth you will feel TDC with the screw driver. By tracing the number one cylinder plucg lead back the distributor cap and then removing the cap you should be able to see if the engine is at number one in the firing sequence.

Rotate the drivers side camshaft

Now rotate the crankshaft one hole turn till the 3 marks are re-aligned.

Now rotate the passenger side camshaft until the hole in the sprocket lines up the the slot in the top of the cam cover. Put belt on.

Rotate the crankshaft 2 whole turns and double check that the sprockets still line up to their respective marks.

Start engine
