I fixed my scort and now the new timing belt is jumpin on one side of the toothed pulley between the tensioner and the crankshaft. I think that is the water pump?....but, it is in the grooves on the down stroke side, but the other side the grooves arent lined up and it jumps and makes a noise, but the belt also barely hits this pulley on that side. Is this the way the belt is supposed to be routed?....im pretty sure it is like the old one was. Any ideas on how to cure this problem?

I´d "try" to help you out but I have no idea how the timing belt is situated on the 1.9s, especially 1st gen 1.9s. But I would figure people would look at your name and know exactly what you have, I did. ;-)

FIRST GENS RULE!!!!!!!!!!

Now that thats out of my system...

The routing for the timing belt is as follows:
Starting at the top ot the Cam pully and going clockwise (to the right) the belt should make a straight line down to the crank pulley, then around the crank pullystraight up to the water pump. It should then bend to the right around the water pump, and then the flat side should bend back to the left around the tensioner pulley. After that it should go strait back to the cam pulley.

Double check that both tesioner bolts are tight. I know the left one is a bugger to get to, but do what you can with an open end wrench. Also try aplying a little extra tention on the tentioned before you start to tighten the bolts.

it turns out i had the belt routed around the tensioner on the right side of the camshaft pulley. It now runs and does not make that noise!!, thanks for the help, now all i have to do is adjust the ignition timing for best power.
Thanks
