The timing belt broke on this 1996 Subaru Legacy while driving back from Chadron Nebraska. The vehicle owner only new that his Subaru had stopped running and would not restart. The owner called me and I told him that I would be happy to diagnose the problem for him. When I found the problem I called the owner and told him what I had found. The research that I did indicated that this particular engine would not be damaged when the timing belt breaks. I suggested that we put a timing belt kit from O’riellys auto parts in it. The kit comes with a new water pump which you can see in this photograph. The kit also comes with new tensioner pulley’s.
