Come one, come all. Drop what you are doing at once.

Just a quick overview:

I worked in repair shops and compiled about 8 years experiance working of pretty much anything as a professional. I have always been a tree climber as well. If you think cars are fun...
My outback, which I just adore, needs some work so firgured I would do the head gaskets at my shop. I usually do more tree stuff than car stuff but have usually done my own work. I have an f350 and an f150 along with other tree related equipment. I will say this though: whenever one of my saws isn't running right ( or I drop it out of the tree) I don't mess with it, it goes right to Bill Neff at Main Line Mower where its taken care of real well. Thing is I use Stihl so I don't take them in very often.
Sorry to get off track, one more thing; I do invite you all to visit Arborsite.com. There are tons of pics off all the crazy stuff I do there as well as some amazing pictures of others, video too. If you go and want to find me, I am The Dan, Treemandan, though my name is Ben.



So that part is done. I guess I need a new tensioner?

Also I found this.




I am hoping that it is just from the upper hose seeping into the t-belt cover. Has anyone seen this before?

I was wondering if I had to really pull the cams before I pulled the head? I took the one side rocker arms off, cause the manual told me to but is that necessary? Kinda thinking flat-rate would be just unbolt the head. I am in no hurry though myself.

I like how the thread is progressing in a stream-of-consciousness sort of way. What's going on?

Not necessary i see you have SOHC. You can even do the HG in the car.

Setup your profile so we know which car you're working on.

Did you have to go to Arborsite to figure that out or was my post enough?

Now can you help me with my car?

Yes sohc motor. 02 outback wagon. I posted the pics think it was enough. I don't know enough about all the different motors subaru has out there. I remember one motor if you took the oil fill cap off the engine would stumble bad.
EJ25 is cast on the block, in the front by the oil pressure sending unit. The hood sticker: 2.5 sfi.
I pulled the motor to seal the back of it as well. Also, I am getting kinda old and don't have a lift, I would rather go through the torque sequences with it on the stand.
I am useing a Haynes manual, so everytime something important comes up I double check it.

get a factory manual, I've heard that the torque values of the other ones may be suspect. Yes, you'll need a new tensioner, that one is toast.
