In my haste, I forgot to mark the position on the original timing belt when I removed the water pump. Stupid me. If that wasn't bad enough. The crank and cam were not positioned to any timing marks prior to removal. I do want to be clear though, The cam and crank have not been moved at all since the removal of the belt and the timing was fine when I took it off. So How do I go about putting a new belt back on this? I can post pics if needed. This is the single overhead cam type with two guide rollers, one being spring tension type. Please help! Need my car back. Wife is agitated.

Here's a picture. The crank mark is shown with the cover and pulley in place but I believe there is also a mark on the inner part of the gear. the keyway faces straight up. The cam gear has a hole in it that aligns with a hole in the head.

This is not an interference engine so you can rotate the gears manually without damage.
