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?

You can search the vendors to see if they sell the tool. Someone like JNZ or SBR might carry it.

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.

sounds to me like you're doing about all you can do. sounds like a nasty cold that you just need to sleep and liquify off! keep drinking that water- depending on how your throat takes it, drink some orange juice.

I'm a nasty spammer and apparently I like sex with goats!
