[V8] G40 Timing hall sensor error 2113 - slipped belt?

When I did the timing belt on our V8 #2 last fall, I couldn't get TDC on #1
piston with the proper "mark" on the crank pulley lined up, and I couldn't
get the camshaft holder plates installed either.  To get the plates
installed, I had to take off the cam covers and turn the engine until the
marks on the cam gears themselves lined up properly.   After I  removed the
belt, I could turn the engine to TDC and get the mark on the crank pulley
aligned with the pointer.  So this car ran 60K miles from the previous belt
job (according to the records I got with the car) with the timing off a
fair amount.  Engine seemed a lot more peppy when I drove the car after
getting the TB job done.  Then I blew off the lower radiator hose, and now
the waterpump makes a lot of rattling noises after the engine warms up
fully.  New pump on order.
