    Superb write up. very Easy to follow with logical pictures! A couple of points I will add.

    - This one's already been covered but I'll go over it again. What do you do to lock the Crankshaft when removing the Crank Pulley Bolt. I stuck mine in fourth gear with the handbrake on (e-brake for the USA viewers) and that worked fine.

    - Not all Subaru DOHC engines run the extra Idler between the Tensioner and the RH Top Cam pulley (looking at the front of the engine) but the kit I bought had the extra bits to do the job if required. Apparently it's something to do with the extra thickness of certain head gaskets? Thick gasket = no small idler, thin gasket = additional small idler. The reason is that it allows the use of the same length Timing Belt when the Cam Pulleys are effectively closer together by making the timing belt route a little longer.
