you can do it its easy. take they number 1 spark plug out and but a long screw driver down and turn the crank till its at tdc. there is also a mark on the crank gear. set the cams so the intake cam has the I pointing to 12 0'clock and on the exhaust side the E pointing to 12 oclock. usually the intake cam needs to be held as it like to move. put the t-belt on and tighted the belt with the tentioner and see what it looks like. you might have to do it a few times. check out miata.net for more info

If you feel like sliding some funds for gas i'll come up there and show you how do it in a very easy way. i learned it from miata.net, and the last time i did it (last weekend after getting a head from Rocky and swapping out for my burnt valve), it took all off 5 minutes to line up the crank, cams, and slide on the belt. also, are you using a new belt or reusing an old one?
