The attached pdf file is about replacing the timing belt.
The installation section in this attachment is important for setting the belt tension.
It is way down on page 7 and easy to overlook.

So the 80 is ftlbs and the 108 is Nm
If it says 40 inlbs then it is in inch pounds (inlbs) rather than ft pounds. 12 inlbs = 1 ftlb.

CAUTION: DO NOT USE A TORQUE WRENCH THAT USES FOOT POUNDS TO TORQUE ANYTHING IN INCH POUNDS OR YOU ARE VERY LIKELY TO SHEER A BOLT.

Click on the attachment.
First time I posted this file it had a nice description, but this time the site only calls it an attachment.

Well got the rav4 timed however im a lil conserned about how tight the timing belt needs to be?
Is their any procedure in adjusting it or maybe the timing belt self adjuster can be not string enough?
Just seems a lil sloppy seems tighter under side than from the top?
Any ideas or method to check?

Did you try the installation section of the pdf file?
Step 3 is where the tension gets adjusted.

COYOTA you need to get a better pdf reader or something, but here is the section. I cannot do the figures because they use up my attachment space.

Installation
1. Ensure that No. 1 cylinder is set to TDC on compression stroke by temporarily installing No. 1 timing
belt cover and crankshaft pulley. Align groove with timing mark "0" on No. 1 timing belt cover. Ensure
that camshaft and timing belt match marks are aligned. Remove crankshaft pulley and timing belt cover.
Install timing belt. If reusing old belt, ensure rotation direction and mating marks are in correct position.
2. Install timing belt guide on crankshaft with cup side facing out. Install No. 1 timing belt cover, crankshaft
pulley, and crankshaft pulley bolt. Loosen No. 1 idler pulley 1/2 turn to tension timing belt. Slowly turn
crankshaft pulley 2 revolutions from TDC to TDC.
3. Check that each pulley aligns with timing marks as shown. See Fig. 5 . Slowly turn crankshaft pulley 1-
7/8 revolutions and align groove with mark at 45 degrees BTDC (for No. 1 cylinder) of No. 1 timing belt
cover. See Fig. 7 . Tighten No. 1 idler pulley mounting bolt to specification.
4. Place right engine mounting bracket in position, but do not install bolts. Install No. 2 timing belt cover.
Disconnect engine wire protector between cylinder head cover and No. 3 timing belt cover. Install No. 2
timing belt cover. Install engine wire to No. 2 timing belt cover. Install engine wire protector to mounting
bolts of No. 2 timing belt cover.
5. Remove crankshaft pulley. Install engine mounting bracket-to-engine bolts and tighten to specification.
Install crankshaft pulley, and tighten pulley bolt to specification. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS .
To complete installation, reverse removal procedure. Adjust drive belts to proper tension.

That worked thanks so basically when timing belt is on proper and lined up with marks 0 tdc
loosen tensioner bolt off
Rotate engine 2 revolutions check marks again at TDC
if lined up turn crank 1 and 7/8 revolution look at mark on lower timing cover that will be mark btdc 45
Tighten the timing tensioner down to 31 pound or so
Done

Spin it anothet 4 revolutions and check it agian see if difference in belt tension from then and now

Heres how i pulled the main seal a puller i made

Do you know where the 45 degree BTDC mark is on the engine block?
And make sure your lower sensor is in place, that you didn't leave it hanging if you accidently took it off.

Go to download.com and get yourself a good pdf reader and/or use chrome as your browser if using a PC.
