SOURCE: 1984 Chevette change timing belt

My first suggestion is calling a qualified mechanic, as this is a delicate job, and any mistake can compromise the integrity of the engine.

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

SOURCE: keep throwing belt

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!

Want to locate my timing belt or chain on my 86 chevy nova

It would be a pain to replace the belt on this engine yourself. It's behind the timing belt cover which is blocked by a few other components that need to be removed. Think about replacing the water pump if you haven't done this already, since you're down in that area.

Check engine compression. Those engines have a cylinder arrangement that looks like four drinking glasses sitting inside a cardboard box. During overheat, cylinders drop below deck height and do not seal against gasket. Non-technical repair was to draw file the deck 'till it's even with cylinder tops.
Obviously, check all of your work as well, you may have inadvertently knocked something loose that has to do with starting.

Replacing engine with a crate engine

You have to get new gaskets like head gasket, valve cover gasket, water pump gasket. You'll need an alternator, if it has a/c you'll need an a/c compressor; you'll need a serpentine belt.

The fact that you ask the question indicates you do not have the expertise to do this. Severe damage can be done to the engine if this is done incorrectly. Find a good trustworthy mechanic and pay the expert to do this job.
