Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
Putting on a timing belt and need to know what direction the belt goes clockwise or counterclockwise
The normal rotation of the engine is clockwise. Be advised, some manufacturers have a specific procedure for how the belt is fitted on, and how the tensioner is set...You apparently have no repair manual to consult. Is it full speed ahead, then? When you get the belt on, be sure and turn the crank over at least two full revolutions to make sure the timing marks all line up again, as true. I would still recommend you check the procedure before zipping it all back together-it may save you some grief. Of course, it's up to you. If you are confident you got it right, it may be well and good.
You know, you could go to autozone.com, and register for free, listing year, make, model, and engine size of the car. Then look under "repair guides" for the timing belt procedure.

SOURCE: timing on 1999 toyota camry 2.2
there are 2 points on the crank and on the drive shaft that have to be lined up and then you put the belt on with the lined up point to point.the belt does not have to be marked

Get a T belt from toyota. It has 3 white lines on
it and and arrow mark. 2 lines are solid and one is broken. Put the
arrow facing away from the engine. The cam gears have a dot punched
into them near a certain tooth. This is where the solid white lines
will line up with. The crank gear will have a dot also. It will line up
at 90 degrees from the top, towards the front of the car. This is where
the broken line will match up with. With the belt installed with all
lines on their proper dots and arrow away from the engine, you valve
timming is correct.
Of course you need to remove and compress the tensioner also. I assume you know this already since you didn't ask.

Both the 4 and 6 cyl. engines in this car have belts. The 4's don't last as long because they lack a tensioner and get noisy. Toyotas for the most part do not get hurt when the belt breaks. non interference engines...nice huh?
