Clayton, the best thing you could do is get a service manual down at the local parts store when you pick up your timing belt. It will give you step by step instructions, the tools needed, and show you the timing mark alignment procedure w/ snazzy pictures to boot. It's a good idea to have a repair manual on hand anyway. Shouldn't run you more than 15 or 20 dollars, $30 at the most.

Is it possible to use the "starter-bump" method on a 4-banger? That's where you use a good strong socket (impacts work great) and then you brace the breaker bar against something strong (floor, cross member, frame, etc). Then give the key a quick turn to crank the engine just long enought to break the bolt loose.

Sounds a little crude, but it works well in most cases.
