  1. ('06-'08) HELP! Timing belt aligning blunder.

    EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Ok so thanks to everyones help and taking my time, I think i was able to get that all lined up. I put the belt on, pulled the tension pin and rotated twice. It did not have a whole lot of issue turning and no real noice but was not simple of course. Anyhow, at 2 turns the marks lined up so...
  2. ('06-'08) HELP! Timing belt aligning blunder.

    EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    I would have been too so this is good info. As for the manual, yes that may be true but its not that I didnt know the steps, its just I had a brain fart and didn't think before I moved the cam and crank. By 'you should be ok, I assume you mean if I did what I asked earlier I would be going...

  4. ('06-'08) HELP! Timing belt aligning blunder.

    EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Ok Yes when I turned them I didnt apply much pressure. Only my hand. No ratchet or anything . Maybe I am making it out to be much more delicate than it is so i should next make sure the crank is aligned now and then rotate left cam to line up and it's somewhat expected it may have some...

    EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)

  6. ('06-'08) HELP! Timing belt aligning blunder.

    EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    Help, I fear I may have messed up when I was changing my timing belt. I got the cover and pulley off etc. and then removed the belt itself and started to prep for aligning the marks on the gears and turned them some (the center and the driver side ones). It was after that that I realized I...

  8. ('06-'08) Remove valve cover 2008 Forester

    EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    So I got the valve gaskets for my 2008 forester and removed the bolts for the passenger side only to find I cant get the valve cover to clear come out. It seems there is not enough room between the engine and the firewall for getting it out to put the gasket on. Has anyone else had that...
