after you took pins & bar out. did you do 2 complete turns of engine by hand & put all pins & bar back to ensure every thing lines up perfect? also i belive you have to undo cam pully bolts before tentioning belt then tighten after. BEWARE... cam pulleys are not on keyways and will spin freely once undone so cams must be locked in position with the cam bar.....
