You will need to have a service manual.
Basically what you need to do is make sure the number one cylinder is at top dead center on the compression stroke and the valves for the number one cylinder are both closed. You will need to have the timing sprocket at the cam shaft exposed. It will have timing marks which need to be aligned. This is where the manual will come in handy.
Be very careful in moving the crankshaft with the timing belt removed or mis-adjusted. Very very very few engines have clearance between the valves and pistons. If you use the starter to move the crankshaft with the timing sufficiently off, you will bend / break either a valve or piston.
Best of luck, Jim
