You will have to remove the motor's accessories to access the timing cover and the belt underneath.

A good mechanic can do it in a day (or less) and a novice with the right tools and nothing out of the ordinary happening can do it in a weekend easily.
I know this.
I just need the timing marks to set it properly when I get to that stage.

I guess I'll be buying a manual..
