Happy holidays all, and while everybody else is probably relaxing on their holiday, I've decided to tackle the timing belt. Putting everything back together, I noticed that the timing belt blauf. sent was not an exact fit on the cam gear; that there is some slop between the belt and gear allowing some rotation, albeit minimal, of the crank pulley that doesn't exactly correspond to rotation on the cam gear (1/4-1/2 degree maybe).  So, checked the part numbers of my old verse new belt, and did the same at tpc.  Looks like they sent me a belt for one of the later 10v engines.  Have a feeling I'll be contacting them first thing tuesday morning.  Don't feel comfortable at all with that belt on there.  Do I hear an amen from the choir?
