Yeah, I wasn't looking forward to a tooth count, so I wondered if I could just check to see that everything was lined up. That's not too hard in my car, so that's what I will do when there is time.
This is the second time I've replaced the belt in this car and didn't use belt marks previously. It ran fine for 60,000 miles, when I decided it was time to replace it again.
Thanks, ciper, for the tooth count. I wondered about that, too.
