When tensioning the timing belt, rotate the eccentric counter clockwise (as viewed looking at the front of the engine). If the eccentric is turned clockwise, it will tend to back-off in normal use, while counter clockwise stays put.

Do it wrong and you'll have belt tension problems long before the bearing seizes to the point of being able to screw the stud out of the head.
