I have rebuilt a Jspec 4g63t, and was fixing to put it in the car yesterday. I rechecked my timing marks, and they were off pretty bad on the crank and rear oil pump gear. It appears the belt has perhaps stretched some over the past couple months, and now when i reapply the belt one of two things will happen: 1. My crank/front oil gear will be off by 1/2 tooth when i apply tension. 2. My rear oil pump gear will be off by 1/2 tooth. Nothing i try makes ALL the timing marks be perfect when the tensioner is applied. So...what to do now?

Make sure you post something like this in help tech next time.
For your timing make sure your slack is on the right side

Well, the belts don't stretch. But if you think it did, replace it with a new one. If it still doesn't line up, you're doing it wrong:D. Read through the VFAQ and follow it EXACTLY.
