hey guys problem with the timing belts. I've got all the marks lined up but it will only run for a second and makes a screaching sound when it does. Any ideas

Tell us more, are the timing belts all you did to it and did you have any problems installing them and was it running before?

Can't imagine what could have happened just changing the belts. The screeching sound could be one of the tensioners not turning. If it runs even for a second the timing has to be close on the left cam at least.

I wonder if I got the crank backwards somehow
Not if you didn't turn it with the belts off. If you did and happened to set it on T2 and the up marks on the cam pulleys up it would throw the ignition 180 off and it wouldn't try to start at all, otherwise no harm.

I might have got the crank on the wrong side since it takes two turns of the crank for one turn of the cams its on t1 and the cams are marked up and I think there spining worth a double check though

Then it's not possible it's wrong.

so what do I need to do

If the marks line up with the crank at T1, (make sure it is the raised mark on the cam pulley, not the small notch) then something else unrelated is wrong.

But that does not explain why it won't run. Will it keep running if you hold the start button in?
