Default installed new water pump/timing belt.. now it backfires.. please help

Hi everyone, I just recently purchased a 2001 Cruiser Limited Edition. The water pump went out on it the second day I had it, so I went to Auto Zone and grabbed a new one and a timing belt, as well as a altinator belt and serpintine while I was at it. I instaleed everything and now when I turn the car on, it back fires when I rev the engine just a little. I set up the timing markings perfect. I triple checked once the where on just to see if it was off. They still lined up. What is causing it to back fire then? Any advise will be greatly appreciated

I think your 180 degrees off. Not a mechanic but I've read where the back-firing occurs when timing is off. Hopefully someone with more experience with timing comes along and helps out.

I wonder if I can work on the timing without unmounting the engine again, that would be awesome. Thanks for the quick reply Crewzin
