Why would you have to install new gears? They are actually cogged sprockets. It depends if you have a single overhead cam or dual overhead cam engine. All assecory belts need to be removed and front right engine mount. Remove crankshaft pulley with applicable puller. Remove timing cover. Loosen timing belt tensioner. Align all cam and crank marks install belt and tighten and re assemble. Not a job you want to do under a shade tree!

The timing on a 1997 Dodge Ram is not set with a timing light. The distributor rotor is lined up with the mark on the pick up plate when the engine is at tdc to set base timing. The timing is then fine tuned with a scan tool. The scan tool is used to set it exactly to 0 degrees.

1997 Dodge neon replacing the timing belt as it broke when car was running what is the proper way to install this manual says not to turn crank or cam after belt is off?

The book says that because they assume you are replacing a belt that has not broken and they dont want you moving the timing out of alignment. Since yours broke you will need to align the timing marks by moving one or both of the gears to the proper timing marks. Once you have them set right try to get the belt on and the tensioner set without moving the gears off mark. You can do this by making sure that the side of the belt farthest away from the tensioner is as tight as it can be leaving any slack there may be on the tensioner side to be taken up by it.

What is the ignition timing setting for a 1997 dodge ram 5.9l?

The 1997 dodge ram doesn't have adjuastable timing if the. The timing is controled by a crankshaft sensor near the transmission bell housing and a cam position sensor in the distributor. the cam position sensor is uned mostly for fuel injection syncronization. The crankshaft position sensor mainly controls ignition timing and is not moveable/adjustable.
