Default EJ18 timing belt questions

I'm going to do the timing belt on my EJ18 ('95 Impreza AWD). Looking at the instructions off the web at http://www.uniquemotorsports.com/sub...iming_belt.htm, it says to remove the cam sprockets, rear belt covers and tensioner bracket. Right after that, it says to install the belt covers, tensioner bracket, and cam sprockets.

Given this, is there a reason to uninstall these bits, then turn around and reinstall them again (though in a slightly different order)?

Can I compress the tensioner by hand, or do I need to get to a vise?

Finally, do I need to remove these bits to replace the water pump? It's leaking like an old boat.

Thanks,

Martin

1. Removing the cam sprokets and everything else beyond actually removing the belt is unnecessary.

2. No, you will need a vise. Dont compress it too quickly or you could ruin it.

3. Just the sprocket and rear cover on the left side.
