Please send a picture. Looking at front of motor. The crank turns clock wise. Here is a trick align them up then use a paint marker and mark the belt and gear that are lining up the same color. The mark the gear only where they don't line up. Then mark the belt where the mark should be. Take the belt back off then line up all marks on gear to marks on belt when you put belt back on. Their you you should find all marks align up

Don;t forget put on the 1st cylinder/piston at TDC...TOP DEAD CENTER....after that and before take off the time chain check if each color point match...with each point...go to manual repair book always...find some illustration about it and fallow instructions.
