Hi,Did'nt you put your own marks on before removing the old belt..?
I think the crank pulley does have a timing mark on it but that is to line up with the belt mark and not with a corresponding mark on the block as the cam pulley does with a mark on the head but I'm pretty sure that the dowel which locates into the aux belt pulley should be at the 6 o clock (bdc) position when number 1 is at tdc.

As you think it has moved then the only correct way would be to use the proper timing tools which will ensure that the crank is in the correct position.
When I did my belt I remember that the lines on the belt did line up with the marks on the cam and crank when it was in the correct position, the pump pulley doesnt need to be timed.

Are you also changing the tensioner, idler and water pump as it is usually the pump which causes the belts to fail.
