Timing belt?

Ok, i know everything there is to know to rip the rest of this engine apart, but i have never ever done a timing belt on one of these bad boys before. I am going to be swapping the cam, and the only thing im worried about is being able to get the timing belt in the right spot, how do you adjust the tensioner on these things, because the haynes is pretty vague on how the tensioner works. If i knew how to adjust the tensioner then i'd have no problem at all with it.

Don't pry on the roll pin where the spring is. I made that mistake on time and it was a $20 whoopsie when it came fling apart.
