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.
