BTW, it looks like you're replacing the timing belt. As you may have experienced several times already, the bolts between the crank pulley and cam pulley are very tight.

You may need a crank pulley wrench and a cam pulley wrench for your Subaru Boxer Engine.

If you replace the camshaft oil seal (which is recommended), it's helpful to have a sprocket holder to keep the left bank cam from turning and crushing the pistons and valves.

When the engine is at #1 top dead center, the right cam is free, but the left camshaft is pressed by the valve spring and will move when the belt is removed.

Good Luck.
Thanks Noriyasu. I do need to get a new cam holding tool. I'll pick something up before doing the job. Its been about 13 years since the last time I did the timing belt on an SVX, so it'll be interesting to get reacquainted with the job again.

Today, I installed the right valve cover, and after much dithering, pulled the left cover. The AC line on RHD cars limits the access much further. I ended up pulling the bolts from the compressor and pulling off the starter wiring in order to get more wiggle room. I'm glad to be getting this done. The valve covers were both leaking.

Re: What have you done to your SVX (or other Subaru) today?

Yesterday, I re-wrapped portions of the engine wiring harness, reassembled some of the engine bay, replaced some a/c O-rings, and ordered a new AC drier.

I noticed the plug on injector #4 lost its little nib that keeps the plug on. I may try repairing the nib before I replace the injector for this issue alone.

I'm waiting on a large parts order to come in at the dealer relating to my upcoming timing belt service. Depending on when that arrives, I may move on to extracting the dashboard and heater core before I do more work under the hood. We'll see!

Let us know if it fits. I've ordered 3 after market ones that haven't fit.

Re: What have you done to your SVX (or other Subaru) today?

It's a warm day today. The forecast is for rain and snow to after tomorrow.

Almost of snow around the garden and garage has melted, so today I'm recharging the batteries of my SUBARUs, which don't used in snow season.

The batteries are in good condition, but I will be charging 3 devices for 2-3 hours each just in case.
