apokalypse Posted October 6, 2019 Share Posted October 6, 2019 Had a beauty of a day in Ontario to start removing parts on my Legacy GT to replace the timing belt. I've got all the covers off, after cursing and swearing at the charge pipe that didn't want to disconnect. My problem is that I can't see a reference mark for the crank gear to align with. When I rotated the crank clockwise, it's found it's sweet spot and the marking is facing up, but both the left and right pulleys are off slightly. If I apply pressure on the crank bolt to make it rotate slightly more clockwise, then I can make the right and left pulley markings align, but after releasing pressure they slip back to being misaligned. Is this just a case of the belt stretching and it's still mostly timed? Do I need to take any precautions at this point? I haven't released the belt yet, it's still tensioned. Just trying to figure out what my next steps are when I pull the belt... do I just align the markings by rotating pulleys slightly clockwise, and put the new belt on?
