If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?
There's to be an inner timing cover bolted to the engine behind the belt with the cam timing pointer on it. The cam pointer would be just about straight down from the cam bolt. If you run that without an inner cover you could start it one morning and throw the belt when it grinds up the mouse who slept there last night.

Set it with the mark on the cam straight down and you'll at least have a starting point. It'll probably run and when you drive it you'll know right off if it's wrong, even 1 tooth off is noticeable.
