I doubt anyone remembers me but e-rue but i came down and visited a few years ago, with plans on hopefully moving to the area... unfortunately my luck has had other plans for me and i'm still in NJ..
Anyhow, awhile ago i bought a 98 legacy gt, thinking hey they all have subarus and love them, why don't i give one a try.
so i drove it for awhile then all of a sudden one day while my girlfriend was driving home from work it broke... and by broke i mean in a weird, unusual way for a subaru:
hmm what is wrong with this picture!?
so i decided to tear into it, due to it being an interference motor i figured i'd see what kind of damage was done.
here you can see what the pulley did to the timing cover:
here is the best part:
yes that is the bolt that holds the cam pulley to the cam, sheered off inside the cam.
speaking of which, if anyone happens to have a spare L-IN (left intake) cam pulley, i need one, the cheaper the better!
