That's Not Right

I changed my timing belt, now my car sounds like Stuka. I only took it for a short test drive. I had trouble getting enough torque on the crank pulley and I think that is the problem. I bought a tool to try and get the right torque.

After just test starting it I tightened the power steering pump and water pump pulley which improved things.


This was not fun, took many hours, everything seems better except the noise, maybe if it lasts to 240,000 miles I’ll get a new car.
