Re: Replacing Timing Belt

So guys, I have a situation here. I have bought barchetta with 85k km and propably still factory timing belt. I had change it but when in tdc outlet camshaft was slightly turned to the left according to locks and without moving it i could not properly set new timing belt (it was like 1/2 of tooth on the camshaft movement) So i did move it just that and locked in position with lock. Later as I was doing it with book open i slackened the inlet one to give timing belt a proper tension. Of course two full rotation and nothing bad happens so I decided to see how it starts without puting in auxuliary belt yet and disaster happened. It started but showed some smoke from below the cams cover and it runned roughly. As I am now starting to think that collision occured maybe someone here can tell me what went wrong?
