no it is not supposed to b that far out it looks like when they put it on they did not put it far enogh back on the gears. u line up the split on the tab with the line on the base of the tensioner(it will make sense when u look at it) i beleive the torque for the tensioner is around 17 flbs. did they put on a new tensioner when they changed the belt? if not i would suggest putting a newe tensioner on it. learned by experience i did not change tensioner and when the exhaust cam jumped it took out two pistons and all 8 exhaust valves!
