Zaider, thanks for advice.
Why was there not enough clearance? Do you have aftermarket radiator?
And yes, I'm changing all idlers pulleys, as well as the tensioner.
The engine that I'm sending back used single bearings on a couple of the idlers, and the tensioner needed to be replaced.
So, just so I'm straight on the oil pan, I need to get oil pan gasket for 2004 STI, right?
I might just buy the whole head set. Then just buy valve cover gaskets from IAPerformance. That way I'll have everyhing I might need. I'm sure I'll need them all eventually.
My 205 is at 240k, who knows how long my ej207 will go!
