Re: clio cambelt?

Job finished and running OK. Had a strange experience though, after I'd locked up crank and cam at TDC put new belt on in exactly the same position, lines on belt lined up with yellow dots on cam and fuel pump sprockets. Turned engine over twice on crank nut and belt was not lined u anymore on marks. Much head scratching as I knew nothing had moved and I'd been meticulous in marking up old belt and new belt etc. I checked engine and cam still matched up on locking pins and at TDC so put it all back together again and (heart in mouth) turned starter, fired OK and test driven so still cannot explain that one, anybody any ideas?

I've now got my home made flywheel locking pin available if anybody wants it just let me know.
