review the links in mainest's post. They will help explain the procedure. It is also in your best interest to install new timing pulleys as well

The consequences of NOT doing it correctly are very severe, and very expensive! Good luck.

My Question is, My SVT will need a belt shortly, my question is, could I rotate it all to TDC set the bar in the back and then remove the belt and re-install the new belt and tighten the adjuster?
If I am reading this correctly, you are assuming the car is on TDC when you turn the engine and lock the cams in place. All this does is make sure that the cams are locked in place. This does not ensure the that #1 piston is actual TDC. You really need to use a crank locking tool. Unlike the ZX2 zetec, the zetec in the SVT is an interference engine.
