This is about as good as I could find, as far as picture. Note, the locator has to be verticle.

Why are you trying to remove the timing cover to put a water pump on? You get the water pump off by first loosening the pulley bolts. Do not take them out just loosen them. Then take the serpentine belt off and mark the way it was running, then take the bolts out and take the pulley off. You can now get to the pump bolts. As you take the bolts out remember which ones went where as to length. If the pump will not pull off there is a space to pry on. Pry on it easy and it will come off. Clean the old RTV or gasket off the motor and get ready to put the new pump on. Some water pumps go on with a gasket some go on with RTV sealer. When you get the water pump on and tightened up put the pulley up to the pump and hand tighten the bolts in the pulley then put the serpentine belt back on as the diagram shows then tighten the pulley bolts as the belt will hold it.
