pulled the motor in believing it was a rod knock.
Take off the timing belt cover and BAM timing knotches are out of whack!!!
little bit of slack on the belt.
and it seems like the tensioner failed on me....
less than 250 miles on this kit and it fails....

what the absolute FU!!!!!!CK

after looking around i'll need to inspect to see if they are chinese parts.


took oil pan off and was surprised to see killer B items, makes me happy.

pickup was a little dirty. Will do a cleaning, after i find out how to clean these parts

you can kinda see the marks on the cam gears. Not lined up

anyone know how i can check for bent valves? i do not want to remove the heads unless i absolutely have to!

Well if you heard sound that sounded like rod knock that's probably not a good sign.

A compression and leakdown test should show you any bent valves but you would want to replace all your timing gear first and get the engine back in time before you even try it.

I'd still recommend just pulling the heads. Someone else might chime in with a different suggestion.

Today was fun.
Found out it was indeed the tensioner that failed. it moved way to easily.
I"M VERY UNSURE WHAT TO DO NEXT!!!!
i bought an iag block a few weeks ago, This ej205 block is fine after looking at it.
Do i buy a new tensioner and run it till it dies?
Do i go ahead with the build of the new block?
and keep the old block to sell?

Took the valve cover off to find a few of the bolts holding the cam in were loose...
and one bolt was even broke off.
HOW THE HEL!!!!! DOES THIS HAPPEN????

you can see the broke off bolt in there. also scoring on the cam?

Taking off the intake manifold i forgot a plug... ripped the wires clean out... How the eff do i go about this.
i was thinking of making the wire longer, wrapping it around the metal plug and soldering it.

I had a belt tensioner fail on one of my first motors. but it was the bolt holding it to the bracket, not the hydraulic part, that's crazy!

For peace of mind, get OEM timing components. At the very least, that tensioner.

Just watched your first start video, and I might blow your mind a smidge. I see how you have your hood prop to get it more vertical. Subaru actually designed this in to the car. See the eyelet tab on the top of the passenger strut tower at the front? the hook part of the prop rod that normally goes in the hood goes there. The other end has a few steps in it so the hood rests on it even in a light breeze. Once you get the hook in the eyelet it's pretty obvious where the other end goes in the hood. enjoy!
