-Find a largish allen key that fits into the square hole on the tensioner pulley and use this as a lever to rotate the wheel downwards so it applies pressure to the belt, tighten up the nut, now pinch the timing belt between your finger and thumb in the centre of its longest stretch (the front of the block), now gently twist the belt you should be able to twist it no more than 90 degrees, and adjust if neccessary. Now remove the timing tools and rotate the engine 3 turns using a large spanner on the crankshaft nut.... now recheck the belt and tighten or slacken if neccessary.+Find a largish allen key that fits into the square hole on the tensioner pulley and use this as a lever to rotate the wheel downwards so it applies pressure to the belt, tighten up the nut, now pinch the timing belt between your finger and thumb in the centre of its longest stretch (the front of the block), now gently twist the belt you should be able to twist it no more than 90 degrees, and adjust if necessary.
