The only way to set the cam is the old way. Line up the marks on the distributer drive, and the crank with the belt still on. Make sure #1 is TDC by putting a long thin screwdriver in the plug hole and gentle rock the engine a few degrees and the piston is at abslolute TDC.
Take off the timng belt. Make sure that both valves are closed on number one cyl by gentle rocking the cam back and forth. DO NOT rotate the cam as the valves will hit the pistons and cause damage.
Make a mark on the cam gear so you can use it as a reference point. Before you put the belt on make sure the tensioner doesn't pull the cam off angle.
