HELP!! Lost Timing for a '87 Toyota Tercel

Timing belt broke on my 1987 Toyota Tercel 1500cc 1 barrel engine. Replaced Timing belt after setting cam shaft and crankshaft but car still won't start. Asking following questions:

1.- How should the crankshaft and camshaft be aligned?

2.- Procedure to set timing? (would like to do this without removing valve cover) if possible)

I have shipped this car (made for the USA- Non-californian) to South America where I am now stationed and ordering a manual would take too long and I do not really understand the language.

Greatly would appreciate any AND all help!!

Thank you.
