Default Question regarding the rotation of the cams when changing timing belt..

Alright so I read about on the driver side cam gears, that the intake should only be roated clock-wise, and the exhaust should be rotated only counter-clockwise.. what about the passenger side pulleys? Same rules apply?

I always do the passenger side the same way except I turn the intake counter and exhaust clock wise thats on the passenger side though of course. I dont really worry about the pass side though since the driver side is the one thats loaded and therefore if the tools slip and the cam gears both spin towards the inside you can get valve to valve action. Just set your pass side gears and then when you do your driver sides make sure they spin the way you posted and you will be fine.

And since none of what I just posted answered your question I personally spin the passenger sides however is closest to lining up the marks and have never had any problems. I just make sure the drivers side is perfect and I am spinning them as subaru states they should be. GL

And once you get the timing set remember the marks will never line up again after you spin the crank so make sure your marks are perfect (use the marks on timing belt-dotted line is crank) and then when your all done rotate the crank shaft with a breaker bar or something and make sure your all smooth and no interference. You will know it if you did it wrong.

My marks always line up again? Do you mean on the T belt? Then yes
