If the timing belt on a 1999 Galant broke what order do you line up the gears before reinstalling the belt?

If the timing belt broke you probably got some bent valves. but as for puting the timing belt back on, there are marks on the outer edge of the cam and a indention on the valve cover behind it. line those up and on the crank gear blade there is a small v. line that up with the triangle on the engine- around the 10 o'clock position. then you will have to commpress the tensioner and use a small Allen wrench to hold it compressed. then install the timing belt and put the tensioner back and pull the pin. spin it over by hand and make sure the marks line back up

If you have a 6 cylinder 3.0L the timing marks are located on the crankshaft gear for the timing belt (its just a notch on the rear of the gear just spin it clockwise until you find it) that lines up with a notch that sicks out from the block just above it. The camshaft marks are little arrows on the camshaft gears which line up with little marks on the cover plates that close the back of the gears in (about 1 o'clock)
