I will do my best to answer your question as quickly as i can with the information you have provided. Thanks for visiting JA!

 

The timing for this model is pretty straight forward. Now I'm assuming that the timing covers and the crank pulley are off.

 

on the crankshaft timing belt pulley there is a dot on the edge next to one of the teeth, this mark lines up with a notch on the lower timing case the position of which is roughly 4o'clock,

the camshaft also has a dot next to one of the teeth, this lines up with a notch on the upper timing case at roughly 3o'clock,

 

once the pulleys are lined up fit the belt and apply tension, rotate the engine a few times by hand and check the marks still line up, check the belt tension again, and that should do it for you.

I have found the notch on cam shaft at 3 oclock the notch on crank shaft looks more like 5 oclock when they are in line the engine will not roll over The cam feels like it is in the process of opening the valves and you have to hold it at notch or will roll over to around 5 oclock

you may have the camshaft 180 degree off. Both intake and exhaust valves should be shut when the cam is aligned properly.
