once the motor is started the belt will move to where it will ride on the gears. Where it is sitting in the photos may not be where the belt ends up riding once you get the motor to start.

If you find that the belt is hanging off the gears once you have the motor started, it is usually a result of the crank sprocket not being on far enough (or on too far, depending on which side of the cam gears the belt is hanging off of.)

If the belt stay right up to the edge without hanging over, i'd let it ride.

I measured the gap between sprocket at .25
That's what it calls for. 0.25-.030 I believe I read on here somewhere.

ok. like i said, you wont really know where the belt is going to ride until you get the motor in the car and started.
