Hi there, see pics for timing marks, do not turn engine or cam with belt off as this is an interference engine.

There is a line pressed into the tin backing plate, this should align with the hole.

I lined up the timing belt for the car, but the car just doesnt seem to run. Is there another way to place the timing belt? Or at least start the car?

Thanks again
