Question about 1991 Subaru Loyale
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.
