Re: Fuel pump doesn't stop priming, low pressure.
And actually, probably belt tension being too high. In the spirit 9-10 months ago, I didn't quite know what I was doing with belt tension when doing timing and it kept jumping time from being loose, so I just went with the "Tight is right, right?" rule and mashed the tensioner on there about as hard as I could.
And the previous owner just recently replaced the oil pump and redid timing. Both cams snapped in the exact same place under the same conditions (60mph, 3000 rpm) 10 miles after stopping for gas 100+ miles into a road trip.
Definitely buying a tension tool. You'd probably slap me if you saw how I did it last time with 2 prybars. You get frustrated, you make mistakes.
