So I assume my t-belt was tensioned incorrectly. The previous owner replaced a cylinder head and I'm thinking he either re-used the tensioner, incorrectly did the whole job, or I'm just retarded and don't know how tight it should be. I pulled the cam cover off and If I push down lightly in between both cams, the belt dips quite a bit and the intake cam moves with it(probably on intake stroke)It seems like If I gave it some corn I could pull the belt right off the cams, and I can flex the belt a little more than 90 degrees. I tried the search bar but didn't come up with anything good enough, does anybody have a link for a FAQ with good pictures on how to replace the belt and tensioner and all the timing marks and such?
