I have a 1989 Subaru Gl 1.8L 4W/Drive with around 80K miles on its second motor. I was driving down the interstate doing 75 mph when my rearend locked up. I towed the car back home and replaced the rear axl. I proceeded to try to start the vehicle and it wouldnt start. I removed the distributor cap and turned the engine over and it didnt move. I have tore down the front end and replaced the timing belts. I first aligned the #2 belt with the locator on the plastic housing and the crank with the three lines alligned at the locator on the casting. I rotated the engine 360 deg. Untill the crank was inline again and put on the #1 belt I checked to see if the distributer was facing the #1 pistion and then tried to crank it up and if fails to start. It cranks smoothly at first but becomes slugish like it is 180 off. Can you please help me. Lesslie.
