Hey guys and gals,
I did my first timing belt over the weekend (121,608 mi) and installed everything just fine (there was a bunch of pipes in the way, but I had the whole weekend).
At the end, I noticed that the accessory belt tensioner is misaligned from the belt. I did remove the tensioner to get access to the timing belt covers and then replaced it afterwards. It is further in (closer to the engine) than the "accessory alignment" and is holding 4 of the 6 teeth on the belt.
Is this normal? I don't believe I have seen this (or checked this) before. Is the tensioner bad? Should I install spacers on the tensioner bolts to align it?
