according to a manual , the crank key will point to arrow , the intake cam should have an letter i aligned with arrow on belt cover and exhaust cam should have letter e aligned with arrow on belt cover , and as always rotate the engine 2 full turns to inspect timing marks before cranking or trying to start the engine . if you haven't taken the original belt off yet , paint your marks for quicker reference .

SOURCE: timing marks and procedures
If it is the 2.5 EJ25 motor the marks ar on the cover and pulleys. Top pulleys are Single line straight up and double straight down which should line up with bottom pulleys double marks. This should line up the single lines on bottom pulleys with 90 degree mark on outer cover both sides.The center pulley for crank should be straight up with notch in block.

well hold on there cowboy, first consult your service manual if your cars engine is an interference type. it means that if ever your timing belt breaks the valves that were stranded shall be hammered by up moving piston. eventually bending and warping of some of the valves would be a result. sometimes a damaged piston could also happen. timing belt breakage is a very serious matter and should not be taken likely. if you do not have a manual, what i do is removing the whole cyclinder head and inspect it. its better to be sure than sorry. in other cases you could see the warped valves by turning the crankshaft from tdc to 90 deg. and after which try turning the camshaft all the way around and carefully feeling the ease or difficulty in turning it and also the lift and rest of the rocker arms. any deviations you from the standard filler guage clearances would mean a bent or broken valves. hope this helps.

You will have to brace the crankshaft somehow, either by way of the flywheel, or the pulley. The trick to getting the bolt to break is "heat". Propane will sometimes work, but it's generally not hot enough. You want to get that bolt glowing if you can, and hit it with air impact then. Be careful not to burn yourself!
I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
