Concur with kdjones2000, provided the engine is in the car and most everything is still connected/installed. Pull the rubber plug from the upper timing belt cover view port. Rotate the crankshaft until through the view port you can see the indent on the cam sprocket align with the pointer in the view port. With the car jacked up fairly high, crawl under with a light, and with a breakerbar/socket hanging from the crankbolt. Look through the underside view port on the bellhousing, and slightly move the breakerbar to slightly rotate the crank to align the notch in the flywheel with the viewport in the bottom of the bellhousing. It's probably pretty close already if you got the camsprocket lined up right. This is so much easier than trying to look through the viewport on the top of the bellhousing, which is completely obscured by electrical crap and vacuum hose.
