Maybe the Subaru isn't common where you are, so the belt might need to be ordered.
I showed my old belt to a knowledgeable neighbour and he demonstrated how the belt probably wouldn't have lasted much more than another 10,000 kilometres. - New kei-trucks are switching back to timing chains. It seems they are less nerve-wracking.
What has been won by the brave at great cost can be lost cheaply by fools and once gone may never return except at great cost.
does anyone know the subaru part codes for the oil seals?
mine has done 81k ive got a belt and tensioner comming, but will now order me a water pump, and do the seals while its there
not sure what year you are working on so heres all of them with clickable cross reference

If I change the water pump at the same time as the timing belt, do I need to drain the coolant first? Or will that just sort itself out when I take out the pump off?

I'd drain it first so it doesn't make a mess when you pull off the pump
I generally add a can of the antifreeze makers water pump lubricant when I replace the antifreeze (Everyone has there own preference with that).
Hope that thought helps; Have fun and good luck.
