Default Dissapearing oil

*EDIT

I just drained the coolant into the bucket and it looks black, but isn't milky and doesn't appear to have oil in it. The walls on the coolant reservoir are all nasty though. If my cars head gaskets are ok where is all this oil going? Every 700 miles the oil level goes from F on the dipstick to no oil at all. The car has never smoked or leaked a drop onto the ground. Can anyone help?

So I have an 02 Impreza 2.5 OBS with leaky head gaskets. I'm going to start the project later but had a question. I've searched and cannot find out if I need to remove the cam from each head to do the job. I have the subaru service manual which says to, but when I bought the parts from the dealer he said on SOHC engines that is not necessary.

The dealer is correct, you do not need to remove the cams to remove the heads on a sohc. Are you sure you have the correct manual?
