The fact that you ask the question indicates you do not have the expertise to do this. Severe damage can be done to the engine if this is done incorrectly. Find a good trustworthy mechanic and pay the expert to do this job.

I done this many times but it has been quite a while since I've done one, but I do remember the Top Gear (Cam Gear) has a hole in it and also the rear cover has a hole in it also line those two up (easiest way I found was to put a Allen wrench approx. the same size through them both) then you have the top gear lined up. the bottom gear should also have some kind of mark on it also (can't remember what it looks like) it is also a good idea to take off the distribtor cap off and make sure the rotor is pointing at the number one spark plug location, if not (180 degrees out) rotate the engine one complete rotation (without timing belt on) then the rotor should be pointing at the number one spark plug location and you can install the timing belt and it should be all lined up.

There should be a tensioner that is bolted on to the engine with an off center hole with an Allen wrench hole also put in the proper size Allen wrench and rotate it (I think it is clockwise)until the belt has tension on the tighten down the the bolt with the off center hole and you should be done.

DON'T FORGET TO REMOVE THE ALLEN WRENCH IN THE CAM GEAR THAT YOU USED TO LINE IT UP WITH!
