This is a little hard, but you can do it the old fashoined way. You take the FIRST Spark plug out and stick a screw driver inside that hole. You crank the top gear until the little hash mark is all the way up. You will need two people to do the second step. the next thing you have to do is crank the bottom while using the screwdriver to make sure that the first cylinder is all the way up. Its very simple, but if it aint all the way up, your car wont start. You have to put the timing belt on those gears WITHOUT MOVING them AT ALL.

The marks are for an initial reference only. Once the belt is correctly in place and proper tension set, the cam is in time with the crankshaft and will stay that way until the belt breaks or slips from one cog to the next (won't happen if the tension is correct).
After the belt is initially set with the marks lined up, two rotations of the crankshaft (one rotation of the camshaft) will have the marks in a different place. The only exception would be if the belt had an exact multiple of ribs/teeth compared to the crankshaft, and that is not very likely.

Belt covers need to be on. Timing mark on crankshaft (while on compression stroke) should line up with TDC mark on cover. then Camshaft mark, needs to line up by looking through access hole of cover, and align mark on cam sprocket with pointer on inside of belt cover.

Position lower end of right (outer) timing chain on the crankshaft sprocket. Align the copper (or marked) chain link with the timing mark on the outer flange of the crankshaft pulley.
