Timing belt slippage seems to be very likely on this model, due to design. the fly wheel house cover is designed such that it has a perfect opening were mice love to build nest, the nest and mice get caught between the belt and the sprocket teeth, since the belt and sprocket teeth are so shallow, the belt will slip over the sprockets very easily. I pulled out three nest, eight dead mice, skulls and fur between the belt and every sprockets.

So anybody got direction how to re time this ?
