i posted earlier about my timing belt that keeps getting loose between the intake cam to the oil sprocket. i know i havent used the tool that pulls on the timing belt tensioner like in the manual ,where do i get one at? I have a new belt, pulleys, & timing belt tensioner. the book says that you make sure that the tensioner pulley has the 2 holes on the bottom, like 5oclock&7 which i did & it was to loose so i slide it over to 6;30& 4:30 still to loose. seems to me that my tensioner loosens up after i shut off my engine? could my new tensioner be bad? its the factory one i just bought. so can i bump the cam sprockets up a tooth?

Hi William,

Welcome to the forums. We do have rules with regards to posting using capitalized letters (i.e. the shift key). The rest of your posting looks ok.

You can make a timing belt tool if you buy die to cut the thread deeper on a battery tiedown. You can learn more about doing the timing belt job from VFAQ.com. There is a ton of great information there.

You can find timing belt tools on e-bay.
