Exclamation 98 Legacy Outback 2.5 Cam Reinstall questions.

Hey there! I just picked up a 98 Legacy Outback from a friend with a blown head gasket. Not a bad job, motor came out quite easily and everything has been smooth so far. I just got the heads back from the machine shop freshly resurfaced. I got them torqued back on but upon going to install the cams I forgot what position the lobes were in when I pulled them out.. I'd like to note that I'm no master mechanic, just fairly knowledgeable and know how to fix things. It helps that I've done these things in the past.

My question is, how can I determine the position to install my camshafts as well as the pulleys? I also slightly bent one of the engine to tranny studs, would that cause an issue when I go to put the engine in? Any help would be greatly appreciated, I can't seem to find any information on this!

Since I'm new here, here's a pic of my outback. I'm pretty excited to get her on the road this winter!

Go here, find the Factory Service Manual.

Unless you have a tranny with slightly bent holes to fit that slightly bent stud , then yes, it will cause an issue. Pick up a new stud from the dealer.

Awesome! Thanks for the link, I found what I was looking for. I figured the stud being bent would make it a pain to put back in but I wasn't sure if it would cause an issue with the engine separating after install. Probably a good Idea just to replace it. :P I appreciate your help!
