Thanks for repeating what I already related in my question (see link). As I said, that's what I've already done, but after pulling the pin and then turning to the 60 degree ATDC mark (as shown in the BGB) there is NO gap--(metric or standard
)when I apply the counterclockwise 13 lbs to the #1 pulley. In fact, the pulley won't even move at that level of force because the belt is too snug.
Apparently it has something to do with where the slack is in the belt when you put it on?---The BGB says the intake side should have no slack. Or maybe you're supposed to turn the crank 1 2/3 turns instead of 2/3 turn to get to the 60 degree ATDC mark? I can't believe there isn't a Sticky on the MKII board about replacing the timing belt?
