Fitted new cam belt, idler, and tensioner and running okay, but with top cover still off I can see a +- 2mm 'bounce' of tensioner pointer at tick-over. Assume this is normal as pointer being connected to spring arrangement will be subject to the minute changes in belt tension under compression/ valve loads?
Before put cover back on would like peace-of-mind that what I see is NORMAL??

Sounds ok to me, I take it you could not twist the belt more than 45 degrees on its longest side ? If not it's nothing to worry about
