If the timing belt cover bolts come loose then the water pump pulley ends up rubbing on the cover. Check that first.

Take the time to grow another pair of hands.
As you are facing the pulleys make sure that the belt is tight on the right side(idler pulley side) not the tensioner side. With the belt tight on the right side, align the crank pulley marks, then without moving the crank pulley, and with keeping the belt tight on the right side, align tboth cam marks while making sure that they meet at exactly the plane surface of the cylinder head. I found it quite frustrating when I did mine.

That's an excellent tip B)
An easy way to make sure the cams are right is to put a straight edge across the centers of the cam gear bolts and make sure the marks really are facing eachother, sometimes they look straight but are really 1 tooth up or down giving a rough idle.

Oops I wasn't thinking. Both cams are belt driven on the 4 banger so there is no friction gear, d'oh!
Sounds like a friction gear (pretty sure the 4 cyl. has these too) spring. Simple job, you just pull the valve cover off to get access.
Regarding slipping the belt on; if you always end up 1 tooth off, then put the belt on 1 tooth ahead, so when you release the tensioner it is dead on.
