Stock motor, timing belt is not running flush on all sprockets. Seems to be running on a vertical angle in which the belt is running too close to the inside (towards head/block) at the cam sprocket but too far on the outside of the crank sprocket.
I know i've installed my crank sprocket correctly because the nose goes on the outside but with the cam sprocket, the spokes are not in the middle of it. I am assuming that the lip is supposed to be larger towards the outer side of the sprocket. (same deal with the intermediate sprocket being that it is impossible to install it backwards, unlike the cam sprocket.)
Also the writing should be towards the outside aswell.
Seems like a stupid question I know but I can't figure any other reason why the timing belt would be running like that.
P.S. this motor is not running, just turned by hand.
