are you setting the timing belt or just setting the timing with a light ? if you are setting the timing it should be set at about 10 before top dead center or maybe would run a little better at 12 or so thanks jerry holler if you have more .

It is not an interference motor. You shouldn't have damaged anything. I have done lots of these timing belts, what seems to be the problem with you car? Does it run rough or surge?

For all timing belts you should start with the crank sprocket pointing at TDC and the cam sprockets pointing at their designated marks.
You should be able to mark the old belt and and put corresponding marks on the cam and crank pulleys, then remove the old belt and transfer the marks to the new belt and install it.
Personally I would buy a manual as this would provide you with a step by step guide to performing the repair.
I am not positive that this is an interference engine, it looks like it is to me. If you are not accurate in your timing you will cause severe engine damage.

If you plan on doing more than light tuneup work, I highly recommend purchasing a manual for your car.
We have for each of three vehicles a Haynes manual and it contains all the details on maintenance possible for the shade-tree mechanic. All are based on a complete rebuild.
Even if not doing a particular job, one can somewhat estimate what it will cost to have done.
