Question about Cars & Trucks
Remove the belts and spin the tension pulleys, idler pulley, alternator ect and listen for noise. Check them for play. You should be able to find it that way.

IT SOUNDS AS THOUGH EITHER THE BELT IS A TOOTH OUT, OR HAVE YOU MOVED THE DIZZY WHEN CHANGING THE ROTOR ARM? IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WITH A TIMING LIGHT, THEN YOU CAN CHECK ALL THE TIMING WITHOUT STRIPPING IT AGAIN. BUT IF YOU CHECK THAT THE DIZZY IS TIGHT THEN IT IS A VERY GOOD CHANCE THAT THE BELT IS A TOOTH OUT

re-install belt, lining up the timing marks, crank to TDC #1 cylinder, cma pulleys have marks on them, line them up to the index marks as well. If you have a drive wheel in the air, you can pop the car into 5th gear (make sure it's chocked!) and rotate the wheel to turn the engine for alignment, etc. You can put a wrench/socket on the cam bolt to align it as well.

SOURCE: timing belt/waterpump
usually a good time to change it is at about 100,000 miles. change it before it becomes a must or not ride(type of thing). if your water pump is run by your timing belt, then yes you should change the water pump when you do the timing belt. the tension from the new belt will sooner than later kill the bearing in the old water pump and it will cost you twice to fix it versus the one time fix. when you go in to the shop there should be no additional cost to replace the timing belt because it has to come off to replace the water pump.
