If you say it is o.k. then that is what I will do. I did that but I just kept wondering? How does it diferentiate between a new belt and a used one? I would assume that it has only one tension setting. I guess in abot 2000km or so I will release it again to re-tension the stretched belt.

Should I drive it somewhere to get it checked right away or just have faith in the tensioner and re-tension later.

Also, should the belt be at the front edge of the cam pulley or a couple of mm back from the edge?

I will let the tensioner out and then tighten it again. roll the belt over a couple of times then go back to TDC and do it again. Does that sound good?
