The procedure is given in the Hayes manual. You need to turn the cam shaft gear so that the front valves (two valves close to the gear point up) are close and the notch on the cam shaft other end is horizonal (side facing the battery). You need to bring the flywheel (in bellhousing) to top dead center (you will see a notch on flywheel and a fixed pointer on the bellhousing. The notch should be in line with the ponter. After that, you need to bring the injection pump at certain pisition. Then you can mount the belt. It is not a difficult process, I have been doing it, but you need certain tools that will make it easy, such as cam lock position tool, injection pump lock pin, gear remover, etc.
