Default timing off! need a shortcut?

Has anyone ever been able to move the belt 1 tooth on the exhaust sprocket without taking everything back apart?

Nope. Unless your belt is so deformed (in that case you should replace it), it's impossible to jump a tooth.
Sorry!

Yes.

Jack up car. Remove wheel. Loosen alternator belt and pull off alt., push it aside.

Undo pencil bracket on top bolt, loosen on bottom, let it hang down.

Reach up and unbolt timing belt tensioner.

Now you have slack to remove belt from cam sprockets. Do so, and you can adjust cam and crank appropriately.

Apply tensioner back onto belt with pry bar.

Observe how belt moves sprockets while pushing into place, and set them accordingly, so that when tension is applied, timer is correct.

Bolt tensioner back into place. Put alternator belt back on.

Attempt to start vehicle.
