What directions did you follow? Where did you get your info from?

There's no engine damage. IT IS NOT AN INTERFERENCE ENGINE. If you want real help e-mail me at email@example.com.

When you say it still does not work what exactly do you mean? Is there a specific reason why the belt was changed in the first place? Did the belt break? Replacing the belt is fairly straight forward, you line up the marks on the crank and cam and the tensioner takes up the slack. The balance belt is the same with the exception of using an alignment bolt on the rear balance shaft. If everything lines up and the engine won't start there is another issue why. If the belt broke then there is a possibility of valve damage.
