If you have not removed the distributor, generally, the timing should be as it was (assuming that you have properly indexed the belt pulleys.) Therefore, the engine should start and run after you finish the job.
If for some reason you did change the timing before the belt failed, set the crank pulley at "0" and check that the distributor rotor is pointing to #1 spark plug tower on the cap. This should be sufficient to get you in the "ballpark" Get a manual... if timing is adjustable it will be in there.(as well as lots of other useful stuff!)
