    use a ratchet on the crank to pull all of the belt slack out "front" side of the crank/cam, and then proceed with tightening the tensioner.

    can you tell if there's areas where the belt is tighter than other areas? Also, to pull the slack out did you actually rotate the engine one or more times, or just turned it enough to pull out slack?

    I guess make sure the tooth count on the water pump is right, and make sure you infact have the correct timing belt.

    That's my guess, that you have a timing belt that's lightly too big, or meant for another engine.

    i would agree, because that motor has an automatic tensioner, either the pump is wrong or the belt is to big
