Hey I was wondering if any one has pictures or some advice on how to help me with the timing belt. My dad was working on it and messed up by letting the cams move while taking off the belt. the cams moved on the right side only and not by much and he thought he had it put back correctly after making adjustments but it still off a little but not by much. If someone could please help me out that would be great. Thank you.

There are marks on the back cover and there should be marks on the belt itself. I put mine with everything have been off. I mean- cams out, cam gears off, new tensioner etc. The belt did not present a problem. I used Gates kit, which had instructions of its own. Try adjusting by mowing the idlers- the one on top and he one on the left. They take a 30mm socket when you loosen them. Make sure you get those tight after you finish
