    Ok so after doing timing belt change i did what the manual said and turn the engine two complete rotations. after doing so the timing marks on the belt didnt match the timing marks on the pulleys. BUT the timing marks on the camshafts and crankshaft match up to the timing marks on the block!!!! so do the timing marks on the belt even matter or is that just for initial reference. As it sits now the marks are off two teeth after two complete rotations yet the timing marks on the pulleys match on the block. is that right?

    I don't know if this already got answered, but as long as all the marks line up on the cams and crank, your good to go. The marks on the belt are there to ease installation. I can't remember the exact number, but you'd have to turn the motor several times to get all the marks to line back up.
