Question about 1991 Subaru Legacy
I assume that you mean the cambelt idler bearing.Ok if you are sure that the timing is correct for all cams(DOHC)?.Then the problem may be bent valves caused by the bearing collapse allowing the cams to go out of timing and cause valve strike.
I would recheck the timing,ensuring all marks line up precisely,the only one that should look 1/2 a tooth out is the crank.Genuine belts are always preferred for these as they have all the markings on the belt to align all the cams and crank,some other suppliers do not have this
I hope that this helps you,or get back to me with your findings.
