I'm starting a new thread with this instead of using my existing one. I'm going to post all my tear down and engine pull pictures for my 99 SUS Legacy, mostly for my own use later when I'm putting the damn thing back together
I'm going to replace most of the seals and gaskets, timing belt, reconditioning the heads at the machine shop and replacing the headgaskets. Through all that I'm going to try and obsessively document it for you kid's consumption.
I'll post all parts and instructions as I put them in.
These are all the pictures with everything together
First things first, disconnect the fuel pump, and start the engine for a bit to release fuel pressure.
Next, use this radiator fluid drain plug to drain out the radiator fluid.
Then I disconnected the upper return line for the radiator. This along with opening the radiator fill cap, allowed air to get into the top and allows the fluid to flow out more quickly.
Next loosen the intake assembly, there's a few clamps to get rid of then two bolts on the larger assembly. Take those off and slide the whole thing out, there's a few vacuum hoses on the underside, I've circled them here.
Now there should most of the fluid should drained out of the radiator, take off the large hose on the bottom drivers side, and then the two transmission fluid lines. Take the whole assembly out.
Next I didn't want to disconnect the A/C lines and be forced to deal with refrigerant and the like. So I plan on just taking the whole compressor unit off and stowing it to the side. There's 5 bolts holding the whole thing on, one was pretty tricky to get to and required a u-joint on my wrench. Just lift the thing up and set it to the side.
