    I'd pick up a haynes or chilton manual.

    I wouldn't worry about "holding the chain up". Your going to have to re do the timing anyways. Might as well just pull the timing cover and get it done.

    Like he said there are three links on the chain two red and one blueish/greenish. turn the eng to #1 TDC so the crank sprocket's mark is pointing about to the 5-oclock position. then line up the greenish link on the chain to the mark on the intake sprocket. now line up one red link to the exhaust sprocket mark and the other red link to the mark on the crank sprocket. and ur DONE! lol hope this helps.

    what they all said, and you really should get the book, it will help keep you out of trouble and cheaper then bent valves and effed piston tops.
