1989 Plymouth Voyager 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 432000 miles

on a cold -44 degree day I tried starting my van it ran for a moment but stalled upon restarting it popped and sputtered and started cranking over extremely fast, I imediately suspected timing belt, I removed the distributor cap and sure enough while cranking it over the rotor stood still, what I am asking is is there any timing marks I should be aware of when I change this belt ots a 3 ltre v6 automatic

Do you

Installation
Remove spark plugs. Place cylinder No. 1 on TDC. Align timing marks on crankshaft and intermediate shaft sprockets. See Fig. 3 . Rotate camshaft sprocket until 2 marked arrows on sprocket hub align with camshaft bearing cap-to-cylinder head parting line. Small hole in camshaft sprocket must be at 12 o'clock relative to cylinder head line. See Fig. 4 .
Install timing belt. Ensure timing belt is installed in original direction of rotation. Install Timing Belt Tensioner (C-4703) horizontally on large hex of belt tensioner pulley. Loosen tensioner lock nut (if necessary) to reset belt tensioner to within a 15-degree axis of horizontal position of tool. Tighten lock nut.
