  Yeah, I kinda only half said what I was trying to. ;-)  With the 
same belt, if you set the tension correctly, the timing will fall 
spot on or darn close.  As you said, with a new belt it WILL be 
different.  Should still run though especially if it'd never been 
readjusted as the belt got older.  Then it might just fall right 
back on.  :-D
