Hi, I was wondering on a 2.2 1996 outback engine when all three timing marks line up with rear covers the engine will be in time or can it be 180 degrees out. Thanks for your imput. I'm confused.

Yes, the crank pulley has an engraved "line" in one of the teeth at the rear of the sprocket.

When in time, all 3 marks should point around the 12 o'clock aligned with their respective marks). Do NOT use the cast arrows on the camshaft pulleys as timing marks. Ignore these. (When in time, both should point to the 2 o'clock position, for reference).

it's a good double-check ,after pulling the pin on the tensioner and rotating the crank 2 revolutions, to do a tooth count before firing-up the engine.
