    make sure u can see the marks put tippex on them to be sure, once completed and the tensioner is set, turn the engine by hand one full revolution untill the marks line up again, if they do and the engine went round without anything hitting then check tightness of nuts/bolts and rebuild with a big satisfied smile!

    Get yaself some tipex am mark pulley position before removing belt.( even if using timing tool I still use my own markings. I know its definatly ok if the marks line up where old one came off then)

    and make sure you turn it over by hand first.
