    Hello all, I've come here today seeking help with locating a manual for my 2005 legacy ( I don't know the option package as it dosent state GT or anything)
    Its a naturally aspirated SOHC ej25 engine.

    My timing belt broke while driving up a steep hill and being a interference engine i thought it would be toast. I however really like the car so I wanted to at least pull the heads off and look at the damage. I got them both off and found that I got lucky. The gear next to the hydraulic tensioner bolt had broke causing the belt to slip off and shred. My heads and pistons made it through in good shape but I bent 12/16 valves. Ive got a timing kit and and valves/ all new gaskets on the way but would really like a manual to make sure I'm reassembling it correctly. If someone has a spare or knows of a pdf download would greatly be appreciated.
