I just replaced the timing belt on my 95 Del Sol, D15B, non-V-tec. I started it up prior to installing the upper cover to make sure everything was OK, but as it ran the belt moved out board rubbing into the timing belt cover. I re-positioned the belt back inboard, checked that there was good tension on the belt, started the engine again with the same result. I pulled the lower cover again, uhg.. to inspect the install, it looks OK. What could be causing this? The belt is not cambered inboard to outbound is it? I'm stumped. Thanks in advance for any help.
