timing belt slipping

This may be a stupid question, I just got my crank and cam pullys back on after checking for a leak and now when i start it up without the cover on the belt starts to walk of the pullys at about 2000 rpm. The timing seems to be fine
Do I just need the cover back on with the other pullys?

Re: timing belt slipping

the bottom pulley is what holds your belt on.

ok, let me explain it better.

Without the cover and the bottom pulley that the fan belt goes on, your belt will come off. Take a look at the back of your fanbelt pulley, it should have marks on it from the bottom timing/crank pulley and some ware from the belt.

Just another fine idea from Japan! No Kidding, these are cool little motors and way easier to work on then most people think.

Re: timing belt slipping

The same thing happened to me. I replace the head gasket and removed the entire top end. I also had factory AC which at that time I took off. I put everything back together minus the AC pulley and my timing belt was walking and ate up the timing belt cover. What gives? I have never seen anything like that. It hasn't damaged the belt, I looked at it and it is fine but melted part of my cover. I have another cover and will be replacing the belt for insurance puroses soon. Hope it doesn't eat this cover too.

By the way, does anyone know if the Samurai motor is free spinning if you should ever break a timing belt?
