Default timing belt 2.2l na

what is the average time it's taken any of you do replace the timing belt? i did the main seal at the same time, but it was relatively easy! i thought it was like a three hour job. just wondering!

Are you asking how long it takes? And that's it?

three hours is a good amount of time to do this job. I know there are many people that can do it faster, but that's not really the point. Doing it right is much more important.

that's what i was asking alright. i had done it in an hour flat, including main seal, and wasn't sure what book time vs. average mechanic time was. i guess that's about right then. thanks guys!
20 minutes? i'll let you do my next one then!
it took me more time to find the timing marks, than to do anything else! it'll be even easier if i have to do it again in 100k.

Search "2.2 Timing Belt" in the Service & Maintenance forum. It seems like timing belts are summer jobs. I remember last year there was a plethora of timing belt changes. Legacy777 has some nice pictures floating around too. Do a search for user Legacy777 and timing belt.

I think 20 minutes is a little ambitious. I'd love to see that.

Pull fans
remove crank sprocket/bolt
remove timing covers
align timing marks
remove two left side idlers
remove tensioner
remove belt
remove old front main seal
install new front main seal
compress tensioner correctly and "pin" it
install belt
install tensioner
install both left side idlers
Double check timing marks and torques
pull tensioner pin
put timing covers back on
put crank sprocket back on and torque the bolt
install the fans

20 minutes? MAybe, but I doubt it.

Impact wrench baby.

I just video taped it. Took 15 minutes with me talking and showing how to do it.

But I will admit a few things.

Motor out of wagon. Precompressed tensioner. Didnt replace the seals. Those add alot of time.

But if you have air tools, you can really really cruise!

This video will be hosted on Legacy Central sometime next week. It is also be available on DVD along with motor rebuild basics.

that's wicked fast! i used an air ratchet the second time, that made a difference for sure! i couldn't break the pulley(main) bolt free, so i had my old man hold the ratchet(with cheater pipe) and i cranked the starter. VOILA! no problems the second time around, probably age welded itself(rust).
i think i threw the bag and box from parts away, let me check my invoice for a number!
i got it through a parts distributor, not subaru. which means half price and then some! part #'s may be different than suby dealer's. i'll post tonight or tomorrow!
