whaaat? doing a T belt is a lot of fun..LOL I think that 1/2 a teeth is not bad unless you were off by one or complete 2 teeth. Good luck manThe old belt some how got a plastic bag wraped up in it and made the belt slip(head rebuilt) The crank marks are dead own, but the cam marks are 1/2 tooth off either way with tensioner pin pulled. I've turned engine by hand and everything fills ok. Just need to know it will be fine, because this is my first and last beetle belt install.
I KNEW IT I KNEW IT I KNEW IT. Told ya half a tooth would be okay. mine was dead on but it seemed like when I would move it back and fourth it would came back to half a tooth so I double and triple checked it, said a little prayer and cranked the engine...LOL YAY! it was okay :jumpy:1/2 tooth advanced.
