2002 Hyundai Sonata: 4 cylinder, did my own timing job..belts..cranked

Customer Question

2002 Hyundai Sonata, 4 cylinder, did my own timing job. Wanted to check before i re-installed drive belts. It cranked up, about 10 secs later it cut off. I tried it again and it cranked up, about 5 seconds later, it cut off again. I realized i forgot to tighten the harmonic balancer big bolt before trying this and it "jumped timing." I quickly took the belt back off and tried to realign the timing. Am i screwed? The cam sprockets are alittle hard to maneuver so i stopped before i mess something up. Any advice would be helpful
