delicate job, and any mistake can compromise the integrity of the
To DIY, you have first to remove the flat cover on the passenger side of the engine. It goes around the crankshaft gear,water pump gear,exaust gear,intake gear.
If you have never done such a kind of job you risk to damage the engine in a bad way.
If you want to do it yourself buy the Haynes manual, and refer to it for pictures and procedure

If the alternator is on the same belt as the water pump, I'd suspect that the water pump pulley is not in line with the alternator and crankshaft. Stand to the side and look at all the pulleys on that belt. They should all be in the same plane, and the belt should look like a straight line over all the pulleys. If not, check with where you got the water pump to see if there are different pulleys, depending on application.

Make sure your timing belt was reinstalled properly. If your camshaft and crankshaft aren't oriented properly in relation to each other, the engine will not start. On Chevettes, the camshaft pulley has a 1/8" hole in it and the hole aligns with a hole in the cam pulley shroud. Turn the crank pulley to 0 degrees on your timing marks on the engine front cover. Make sure your distributor rotor is pointing at the #1 cylinder cap tower. Install belt and tighten the idler pulley. Good luck!
