the belt gets put on the same way as any other 2.2 motor
I had a dealership put the timing belt 1 tooth off on my 1988 Omni. Power
was down and they said, of course it has no power, it's a 4 cylinder! That
cost $350. So my dear wife brought it to another dealer where they said the
belt was off so they moved it. That cost $250, but it only was there about a
1/2 hour. Turns out they de-tensioned the belt (short cut) but never
tensioned it because that would have taken more work. A week or so later the
belt had shredded the timing belt cover from slapping around. So after
spending $600 I had to fix it myself. Had to replace the belt, and cover.
I suppose in your case the valve timing might be off, and whomever did the
job may have reset the distributor to get the ignition timing correct. Time
to revisit what was done.
there is timing marks on the cam the crank and the idler shaft that
line up with different points marked on the block the cam has a mark
on the cam bearing in front of motor and the crank and idler shafe has
a mark on the block as well as the flywheel for the crank line them up
and you should have no problem
