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.
Good Luck firstname.lastname@example.org

SOURCE: my timing belt broke
When A timing belt breaks, the best way to see if the engine is still good is to retime the motor, put a new timing belt on without the covers or anything else in the way or replaced, (that way you can see the belt and timing marks moving) and do a compression test one each cylinder. you're not looking for compression to be at specs, you just need to have a compression reading on each cylinder. if you have compression in each one, finish the job up and it should work. if you have no compression in one or more cylinders, chances are you have a bent valve. that involves pulling the heads off and having them gone through.
hint: To reset the timing on the engine move each gear just a little at a time swtiching between them each time. If you start to feel any binding that feels like you're hitting a piston, you probably are. it's normal to feel some tesion from the springs, bout you can still turn the gear with a little effort. it's tricky to describe the difference, but once you feel the spring pressure, you'll know what the feel of a valve on a piston feels like. if this happens, just move the crank a little bit and then go back to the cams. take your time and you'll be able to get the motor re-timed.

hi there if you remove the cam pully wich drives the diesel pump you will see a key way in the end of the cam turn the engine untill the key way is flat ( i use a streight edge in the keyway and turn until it is level with the top of the cylinder head ROCKER COVER REMOVED once this is aligned up there is a mark o the back of the diesel pump pully thiss aligns up with a groove between two castings on the side of the pump at the front of the engine once all these are aligned up you can put on the belt ( it may ot start right away this wil be due to needing to bleed up the fuel ONLY IF PUMP BEEN REMOVED and bleeding up the fuel can be a right pain. hope thos helps ben

align the two cam gears so that the inner marks point towards each other at 180 degrees and align the pump gear to a Small notch on the gear that points to a cut on the housing and you're done. pic is included
