Question about 1994 Geo Tracker
I would definitely recommend not to start the engine if you have the least suspicion that your valve cam is not turning in accordance with the crank shaft. You might as well get a valve hitting the piston and then...GAME OVER.
Most japan made cars, including GEO, ( in other areas of the world called suzuki vitara) you must have noticed a plastic cover on the crank shaft. There should be some marks on it. You must twist your shaft to fit that marks, ( usually the longest one or the zero marked) and bring your valve shaft at the marks mentioned at the sides of you cam gears ( the ones that get motion by the timing belt). Most manufactures have arrows indicating the exhaust side of the engine.
Now if yours is the one with OHC, ( single overhead cam) the gear should be marked to point right up.
I can tell you more if I know the type of your engine...
