Here's a few diagrams to help, remember, dont rotate the engine with the old belt removed! Align marks first, crank mark aligns with oil pum mark, cam aligns with cyl head mark...

Your advice seems to be for the 1.9L but I'm not sure why Ford tells you NOT to rotate the engine with the belt removed since this engine is of the non-interference type. In fact, if he broke the belt, the engine and/or cam pulley must be rotated to align the two.

That may be true, but if it is an interferance motor, you would remove the rocker arms first.
