Check automatic tensioner rod projection
rod should project.47 -.55 " (12-14MM) from tensioner body
if not within specification replace tensioner

It will be my first time replacing a water pump and timing belt. I'm going for it on Sunday.

You do not have to remove the crank pulley or timing belt to change a water pump on a 1992 mazda 929. The water pump is not driven by the timing belt. I have already done this!
