Engine Performance problem
1989 Toyota MR2 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 2000 miles

I have been trying to retime my engine for the awhile now, and can't seem to get it to stay on the right marks after I place the belt on. I have tried to compensate for the slack and then the pulley won't move, but when I don't compensate it moves. Do you have an easier method to time, besides dropping the engine down?

Thank you for your time on this matter.
