I was replacing my timing belt and thought thought I was done with it. I had the engine at 90 deg after TDC while replacing the belt. I began to turn the engine by hand, and the belt slipped because the tensioner was not tight enough. I stopped turning, but don't know if one or both cams turned too. Is there a way to get it lined up again?

Is there a way to get it close enough by counting teeth or something so I can turn the engine to TDC without killing the valves? Do I have to pull the belt and cam covers and rotate the cams to a position where they should be for TDC timing, then rotate the crankshaft back to TDC and re-install the belt?

Thanks for any advice,
