cam shaft timing marks on back of cams ,two slots ,use a flat piece of metal to align .remove no1 spark plug and drop long thin screwdriver down it to bring piston just below tdc,then align cams so both cams are on the rock (valves closed) with knob on back cam aligning with pick up sensor left side between lobes.then bring piston up to tdc and fit belt.turn engine over twice with socket on bottom pulley to make sure no valves clear pistons.Remember to remove flat edge from back of cams i didnt last time and bent my home made tool

The front seal could be replaced, and not have a problem. If you have a shop other than a transmission shop do the repairs, make sure the torque converter hub is inspected to make certain its not scratched/scorn. If the trans shifts properly and the fluid is not burned or smells burned, this would be an easy repair. If the trans fluid smells burned, and hasn't been serviced regularly, the rebuild would be the way to go. Also, ask what the warranty for any and all repair are on your vehicle. Normal warranty is 1yr, 12.000 miles in the automotive business.

SOURCE: 2000 FORD ESCORT WONT IDLE
on the sohc engine there is a rubber elbow on back of the valve cover going over to a line at the fuel injection that cracks at about 100K miles and lets the engine **** air and it will idle horrible til you fix it. Check this and see if it's not your problem...I've had it happen to 3 sohc engines and the dealer wanted $400 to fix the first one for my friend...Took about 30 seconds to pop the hood and pull it off, 3 minutes to glue it back together, an hour to dry, and 30 seconds to reinstall it...

you have to line up the two marks on the gears and set the tension to the correct setting. then check the marks again. trial and error. i just did my timing belt on my ranger haha
