Hello, I've done a couple of timing belts before following the forum here.
But usually I just park the car, take off the old belt and don't move anything..so no timing changes are made. But now the car won't fire..has compression gas and spark..I'm pretty sure the belt jumped.so now I need to put a new belt on, but how do I know the pulleys are in the right place please.

Just for the record, I used to follow a sticky on here reminding me how to do it, it was the best.it had pictures and step by step instructions.
But the laptop died now I'm on my tablet and I lost my bookmarked history and can't find it.
Many thanks Roy

This may help...

Pull the distributer cap and make sure the rotor is aligned with the #1 plug wire on the cap.

I cannot thank you enough, that was exactly what I was looking for..I went straight outside and realized the belt was not tight enough and had jumped a couple of teeth.
I put it back how it was in that picture and quickly turned it over with no pulleys or other belts and it idled perfectly immediately.

Thankyou very much

Wish I had thought of that to confirm 100% I got my timing belt right, but I suspect I did anyhow.
