My motor was rotated over with out the timing belt on .. how do I find tdc or where to put the crank so I can line up my timing marks . Which side is number one cylinder one. Any info would help thanks
Edit, ok apparently my little image didn't work so well.
1/3 are on the passenger side, 1 being closer to the front of the car. There should be a mark on the crank to show where to line it up to set timing, you don't want to actually rotate the engine around as you could have some valves open and that's a bad thing.
To the OP, with Subaru engines it is not truly TDC like you would use on an inline 4 or 6. When the crank gear is in the position for timing (mark up, woodruff key down) the pistons are actually all at mid stroke, so that no contact can be made with the valves as you set the cam positions.
I think John's planning on doing his belt etc. at 90K miles
Yeppers. Currently have 84k. I have all the parts for the 90k + timing belt maintenance so I was planning to do it all at once and get it behind me. I plan on having this car for many more years, so I'm trying to stay up on maintenance.
