hi guys i know this is dumb but i have drawn a blank at this point.
ive got the issue of the timing belt being slightly off the cam gear it seems to be riding slightly off towards the valve cover i havent ran it long like this, i have replaced the belt the cam gear the balance shaft pully and the tentioner pully now im thinking of replacing the cams as my last resort.

Any ideas please let me know what i can do or if this can be ran like this ?

thanks everyone

Mine hangs off too. Its not a huge deal and since you haven't been able to fix it, I wouldn't worry about it as long as it is riding off an 1/8 inch or less

I have this problem as well but I have this nasty Squeal. It sounds as if it coming from the T belt area I have yet to take it apart.
