    Just did a motor swap from a D15B7 to a D15B2. Now the timing belt is slipping off away from the motor off the pulley. It actually wore a hole in the timing cover. I'm not sure if I did something wrong or what. Please help.

    you forgot to put the big washer type thing back on before you put the cover, pulley, and bolt on

    there are 2 of them... one on each side of the timing belt drive pulley the parts they say to install with the concave surface facing opposite of the belt ] [

    you need those... they keep the belt in line.... as you have found out ;)

    Some of the water pump gears are grooved so it helps hold the belt on; maybe the mirage is like that?

    lol, statement(s) still has no value.
