Re: need to adjust the timing on my 98 mazda b-2500.
No way...If cam and crank are out of phase you can hurt the engine. Are you certain you did not just turn the engine after belt was in? Only other way to check without teardown is to use dial indicators on cam and piston (and that won't work if factory cam setting is not at tdc. some have built in "lead")

you need to pull the timing back apart pull the number one spark plug and role the motor over by hand to top dead center on the compression stroke the the mark for the crank should be lined up or almost lined up line it up perfect on its mark then set the cam to its mark install belt role over by hand 2to4 full rotation marks should line up perfect . install crank pulley fire it up for a split second shut it off and put it all back together
think you have not put the timing back right and it will need to be re done. hope you used a new belt and adjuster when you put it back together. you need to re line the timing marks on cams and on crank. then put the belt on adjust up making sure the number 1 piston is at the top as well as the timing marks on the cam check this with the crank making, put belt on and adjust up then turn engine one full turn. no spark plugs fitted. back to the timing marks making sure they line up if not re adjust the time until it line back up every time you turn the engine one full turn. then put the spark plugs in etc and start enging.
The keyway and or the dot on the crank should be line at 12 oclock. You will see a point on the oil pump housing to go by. On the camshaft the pointer will be at 12 oclock also. Use the O on the camshaft to the top at mark. Be sure to look at the dist. roter to make sure that it is pointing at the #1 spark plug wire. I could get 180 out of time. If you do it right it should start up right away. then you can use a timing light to finish it.

My sincere apologies for the severly delayed response. I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions. I have only been on this site for the past 4-months as a free contributor.
I do not know if you still need this information, however I am answering it in case you still do.
Click on the following direct Link. It has several Diagrams for your 2000 Mazda Millenia Timing Belt.
As far as how: It would take literally dozens of Pages using this type of forum on the Step-by-Step Procedures on Removal, Installion, and Putting back together; including Torque Specifications of all Bolts and Nuts. I would strongly suggest purchasing a Haynes or Chilton's Manual, available at most auto parts store for $20-$25. They have the complete guidelines, diagrams, and phots you will need.
Again my apologies... Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!
