Default timing belt HELP

My 97 Impreza outback 2.2 broke a timing belt. I am trying to replace it but am having trouble getting marks lined up right. Can anyone help?

Assuming you know that the crank and camshaft marks are lined up correctly this is what the Haynes manual says:
- All three marks straight up.
- Looking at the engine from the front bumper, you need 44 teeth (belt trough to trough) from the left cam to the center crank sprocket.
- from the center crank sprocket to the right cam pulley you need 40.5 teeth (belt trough at the crank and peak at the right cam)

My recommendation is do not go by teeth count, go by the marks. As you will learn if you go by teeth count both pulleys will be pointed slightly inward. You will want to take the tensioned pulley off and get all the timing marks lined up. Looking at the engine from the front you’re going to want to make the left top side as tight as you can and then gather all the slack from the bottom left side to the right side and around the right side cam gear and have all the slack where the tensioned pulley goes. Then once you have it set rotate it by hand to check and make sure there all good, first rotation the crank should be pointed straight up with both cam gears pointed straight down, and then around a second time so all are pointed straight up again. For the cam gears the cam cap is a good reference for straight up. This method has worked good for me the past couple of times. If your off a tooth you will be able to tell because you will more then likely not be able to get the tensioned pulley bolt back in.
