I have to change my timing belt, I have a feeling the pulleys may not line up the same afterwords...
if not, is there a method or set diagram to look at?

I always use the timing marks, but I've heard of guys doing this so they don't lose the timing. Take a box cutter or other sharp knife and cut the belt in half vertically so that you have 2 narrow belts instead of one wide one. Remove the outside half and slide the new belt on part way in place of the piece you took off. Now cut the other half of the old belt and finish sliding on the new one.

Turn the motor over to get the crank pulley on zero. Mark the auxillary gear and cam gear on the gears and block. Pull the belt off put new belt on.
