HI,
I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your customer.
The best way is to use cam locks, which you can rent from Autozone or Advanced Auto Parts. You line up the cam sprockets then install the cam locks to them to keep them from turning as you install the belt and then the tensioner.
In a pinch you can cut a couple of wooden wedges to go between the cams to lock them in place.
