So I had all the marks lined up perfect, as well as with additional marks I made on the old belt and transferred to the new one through taping the belts side by side with masking tape, everything was perfect.
Then I installed the harmonic balancer but did not Torque it to 181ft lbs
as that requires a helper as I block the flexplate with a chisel and they use the tq wrench. I rotated the balancer twice to verify the lines still matched up. They did not.
Is this because I did not torque that bolt and it was tightening while I turned the motor over by hand? that's my assumption but just wan't to get some one who's done the timing belt before's opinion.
Thanks for input
I did re use the tensioner but it appeared to be working fine.
