Not news per se but...

I'm certain it's an external HG leak. The black goo on the head does not smell of oil but does smell like coolant.

I have been referred to a local subaru technician who does work on the side at a reduced rate. He's quoting $650 for HG, associated gaskets, and full timing set change (including water pump), and all labor. I grilled him with questions and seems knowledgeable. I was referred by a shop I trust. I think I'm going to let him do it.
