If this is for a 3.5L engine, after removing the 3 piece timing cover, there is a small mark over one tooth on the crankshaft timing belt pulley. turn the engine clockwise until it lines up perfectly with the mark just above it (you may have to clean the area and you will see an arrow that will point to the timing mark). This puts the #1 cylinder at Top Dead Center. Each camshaft will have a dimple on one tooth. This dimple should line up in between 2 dimples on the rear timing cover. When both camshafts line up and the crank is still in place, you should be in time. Turn the engine over (by hand)2 full turns and make sure all timing marks line up again. The tensioner can be a little tricky. Remove the 2 bolts underneath and remove tensioner to loosen belt. When replacing, compress tensioner in a vice and insert a small Allen wrench or drill bit through the hole in the housing and through the pin to keep it compressed. re-install tensioner and remove drill bit so tensioner puts tension back on belt. Hope this isn't too much all at once. Good luck.

The timing is computer controled and not setable.
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.
Timing is done by the PCM. No manual timing can be done with out a new PCM
The 3.3 it runs off of the serpentine belt. The 3.5 it runs off of the timing belt.
