Firstly if the belt went you probably have bent valves. However if you want to assemble and see remove cam belt covers,remove crank pulley (could be tricky if you don't have an air tool ) remove tappet cover ( you may have to remove the throttle body to do this) Get some flat bar approx. 6mm thick and 400 to 500 mm long. You will see that on the gearbox side of the cams there are slots in the end. Remove the plugs and put a screw driver ( long ) down the hole, any one, and turn the crank untill the piston is roughly half way down the bore. Turn the cams until the plate will sit on the head and slot into the cams thus locking them. The slots are offset so you will have to play around until the plate slides in easy. Then loosen the cam gears untill you can spin them by hand, but not so loose that they are falling off. Put your long screwdriver or preferably a dial guage with extensions into no 1 plug hole turn the engine untill the piston is right at the top. Loosen the tensioner and push it back against the spring and lock it fit the new belt right to left then let the tensioner go. Check play on longest side of belt it should move about 6mm. lock the tensioner. Tighten the cam pulleys and remove plate. turn the engine one full turn clockwise and check belt tension- adjust if neccessary. turn one full turn again and make sue plate slides in when no. 1 piston is on top. Then do a compression test to see if you have bent valves. If the compression test is ok. reassemble and drive away. If not (the exhaust valves are normally bent) you are half way to taking the head off. In which case contact me and I will walk you through it. Good luck Shaun

This is the same as a Ford Escort 1.9, the #1 cylinder should be all the way up. To confirm- the crak shift mark should be on zero which is Crank Shift Center- THe camshift sproket should align with the headmark. Make sure both marks don't move. Align the belt- not too tight , not to loose

The timing could be 180 degrees out you will have to do it all over again. Bring #1 cylinder upto TDC check the distributor rotor arm that it is pointing to #1 plug wire, It is important that the cams are on the intake stroke and not on the exhaust stroke. The crank is no big deal just make sure the marks are lined up.
