got a 2000 forester with a 2.5 sohc

working on pulling it apart for timing belt/water pump/seals etc

FSM says tooth count should be 44 and 40.5

my replacment is 47 and 43.5

mitsuboshi CD304 is the belt

does that seem wrong or is the FSM referencing an old engine just never been updated

Thanks for this. I don't get why the FSM keeps either omitting this information or printing it with errors (that Haynes then dutifully reproduces).

I looked at that twice, then looked at the picture, the third time. Look at the picture.
I am sure there are others that missed that tooo.
