The leads are still mixed up so you need to ascertain which is number one, two three cylinder and make sure the correct lead goed to the correct spark plug and distributor contact. If the engine runs but runs rough you likely only have two wires mixed up. Pull on wire at a time off. If the engine stalls or runs worse put it back on. Do this until you find two wires that do not affect the engine running when you pull them off and it will be these two that are interchanged. It will likely be easiest to do this at the distributor end. If you do not wan to get a shock do it with good rubber gloves on or pull a wire off with the engine off and see if it starts and if it does you likley have pulled of a wire that should be connected somewhere else. GOOD LUCK.
to check timing belts simply see if the cam shaft is turning when you crank the engine. remove the oil filler plug in the rocker cover and if the cam is turning or the rockers are moving then the belt is ok
The camshaft inner chains have gold links on them to line up with the mating marks on the camshaft inner sprockets.
The Main Drive Chain has two blue links that line up on the camshaft outer sprocket mating marks and a gold link that lines up with the mating mark on the crankshaft sprocket.
this is a very big job, I have the same car, it is located at the bottom rear of the engine, you need to remove the timing chain housing, timing chain turns the water pump, and also remove the exhaust manifold, takes no less than 6 hours in a shop on a lift
if this is 6VD1 engine it has single cam gear each head, but is still a 2 cams per head, engine
if belt has broke or you have turned any gear you must remove rocker covers to check positions of camshafts front lobes are in certain spot as well as timming mark on belt driven cam gear to cover
this cam gear is a 3:1 ratio (3 turns of cam gear = 1 turn of cams)
