I think I initaly posted this in the wrong place. Heres the question: I just had the head rebuilt on my 95 LX. Its now on the engine, more or less. They say in the service manual that after you get the timing belt on, you should turn over the engine, and recheck the timing to make sure everything is still lined up. Well, as it rolls over, the timing belt walks out on the cam sproket. It makes it out til about a quarter of the belt width is stiking off. But, when I look straight down on things from above the belt, it appears to be running straight up and down, and the cam sproket is off to the side. (too far twards the drives side, I mean). Is this normal for these engines? Its making me crazy Any ideas would help.
thanks. Joey

Are you sure the belt was tightened down enough? sounds like it isn´t. but the cam sprocket could be off a little too...?

I was actually kind of thinking that there might have been a washer or spacer of some sort that is supposed to go under the sproket, and now its just to far over without it. Im going to take it off and see whats up under there.
