1 just replaced a timing belt on a 92 eclipse 2.0 their is no slack in the belt when I put it on. When I rotated the engine their is a little slack in the belt between the exhaust cam and the oil sprocket but when I rotate it back to tdc their is no slack the belt is tight on both sides

A minimal slack is expected but ensure you have adjusted the tension correctly as too much slack can cause problems later on.
