A while back, someone had a post which described a tool that held all the cams in place while you replace the belt. They rented it.

While you're in there, might as well replace the water pump as a preventative measure.

Visit a local GM service mgr. If you approach him in the right fashion, he might just give you a print out from the GM computer system. One local service mgr does that a lot.
