Depends on your engine, the 1.6 Korean engine used the water pump as a tensioner and idler. The 2.0 had separate tensioners. And the V6 had a chain. The tensioners are not hard to find, you need to remove the front covers to get to them. If you are changing the belt and tensioner, I would do the water pump too. You have it open, might as well. Hope this helps.

All, well, mostly all, carburetors are located right in the center of the engine, on top of the head block. Some have a black cover, so to see the carburetor, you must remove that cover.

Click on the following free direct Link. It has the Timing: Belt and Mark Diagrams for the 1988 Daihatsu Charade 1.0L 3-Cylinder which is the closest to the Hijet. Plus additional Instructional and Directional Diagrams.

Note: the annotated Align Matings Marks located on the engine casing, or the Belt Alignment Marks.
I owned one of these while living in Japan.

Car wont fire

Does the car run? When the belt jumps it can bend valves, a belt a tooth out or a bent valve will wreck the timing and firing order, try doing a compression test
