Right have followed the mannual exactly to get the timing dead on. one thing i notice with the belt, is that its so hard to get on in the first place and then i need to use the full tension to tension it up correctly once on?
also pulling the belt up from the crank, to the exhaust it seems to be "half" a tooth out on the belt? im following this exactly
and yet when i go to turn the engine over via the crank it locks up after 20/30 deg? ive even gone to the hassle of putting the crank at 50/50 in the bores to spin the cams to check its not a problem with these but they rotate as the should (albit in a jerky fashion) so am i doing something wrong here?
another thing ive noticed is that its possible for the water pump to be used as a tensioner too, although no mention of this in any of the mannuals. ive got the notch on the upper right (looking at it) hand side as that where the old one came off, again is this right?
cheers for your time guys
