Legacy was never available with 1.8 litre motor. Legacy has no distributer. Legacy uses direct ignition. Legacy timing is computer controlled and not adjustable. loyale was only available with 1.8 litre. If you have 1991 subaru and you are sure the motor is 1.8 litre your subaru is a called a Loyal and is a piece of junk that nearly destroyed the subaru name. Get rid of the Loyal and buy a good used Legacy. Yes, make certain you have a Legacy and not the smaller Loyale-- Legacy has a more rounded nose, and Loyale has sharper edges. If you have a Loyale, (or are overseas and have a Loyale motor in a Legacy), the timing setting is approx 20 degrees BTDC if you have fuel injection (single or multiple injectors), or approx 8 degrees if you have a carburetor.

In general, many of the 1990 through 1993 parts are interchangeable on the Subaru Legacys. But your best source would be a 1991 Subaru Legacy, followed by a 1990 Subaru Legacy. Verify the bolt patters before purchasing from 1992 or 1993.

there are timing marks on both cam pullys and a timing mark on the crank pully as well. you have to have them all aligned to the marks on the inner timing cover, which is virtually strait up and down on all three. and you must also match the timing lines on the new belt up with the timing marks on the pullys. be sure not to roll any of the pullys backwards (counterclockwise) or you could cause some major valve damage.
