Hi there, set the motor up on TDC No 1, there is a notch on the crankshaft pulley and on the oil pump housing, on the cam there is a small hole drilled and that should align with a line on the backing plate, look through the hole to align the timing mark, you will need to do this with a mirror to get it spot on, now don't turn the cam or crank with the belt off as you will bend valves, if you are replacing a broken belt, align and fit the belt and give it a quick comp test, but I feel that you will have bent valves.
