"replaced by the dealer in 2012".....maybe with the same single layer black coated head gaskets.Yes. It only mitigates external leaks though and works better with original gaskets, but it's not going to hurt anything on an otherwise healthy engine.
This. Supposedly required by Subaru. I'm on my way to get some as I need to drain the radiator to do a timing belt.I always use the Subaru Coolant Conditioner, any time I change coolant on any Subaru. It's cheap, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside, and it's never caused any problems for me.
In the past I've wrapped a strap band around the pulley, which was good for >100 ft-lbs. It was also on a 2.2L, so we'll see. Getting off with an impact wrench is easy.Me too Rich. How do you plan to hold crank pulley to remove and torque bolt? I might remove radiator so I can use my new Aircat 1150.
