I'm a little pissed ATM because ive been working on my timing belt today. Everything was going smoothly until i try to put tension on the belt. i followed some write up on here, and it says to tighten it while turning the cranks counterclock wise. well after that i did a test start up and the belt wobbles like hell... normal?
i tried to make it tighter but i dont understand how this tensioner works... is it not spring loaded? does it just sit there? wtf? quick respone would be appreciated.

sure you have the right belt?

the factory manual instructions on how to install and tighten the belt elevated all my headaches. download the factory manual. I not exactly sure how the tensioner works. but all you have to do is loosen the tensioner bolt. turn the crank counter clockwise atleast 3 teeth. then tighten the tensioner, not tighten as you turn.

93 si single.

when i start it up, it just looks as if it wants to jump off.... or skip arround.
the belt is on and it is timed, i dont want that part to be redone. so how to i get it where the belt dosnt bounce arround.

3/4ths of an inch is fine according to the Helms manual. What I do to tighten up my tensioner is take the metal end of a bungee cord, fish it down into the lower cover and hook it under the tensioner "arm", lift on arm/cord and then tighten the tensioner bolt.

GL!
