Check timing belt procedure in the BGB (Toyota manual) on this site. If you have a 5sfe use this link (http://www.celicatech.com/93rmsour/1993/93celica/em/timin0.pdf).
The crankshaft pulley can be a challenge. If you don't have an impact gun then prop a breaker bar against suspension or ground, disconnect spark plug wires and blip the starter.
Use a steering wheel puller to pull the crankshaft pulley.
Support the engine with a block of wood between oil pan and a jack.
