I can't tell if it is the graininess of the vid, or if the timing belt seems to move along the cam pulleys when you loaded it. It sound like something is loose, like your tensioner and is contacting the timing plate. Your belt seems to float around on your cam pulleys, you sure the tensioner is good or tight enough? I would relive tension and check for deflection of anything. You will narrow it down.

also is it 10*..an would bumpin that up make it run better?

Good stuff, is it possible tensioner is bad and causing the occasional vibration you describe. You don't want it failing you. Worth the $40-75 for part to avoid a tow. The mark on the crank pulley is small and hard to find. It is a small indent dash on the flange between the belt grooves on the crank pulley, the numbers are on the lower timing cover. You have to jumper a wire in the diag. block to set the timing correctly, unsure which though. If you go above 10* like 12 or 16, you must use a higher octane fuel.
