I mean I'll try anything once unless I find research proving it won't work. Don't think that everybody on here that asks questions doesn't do their research.
I have looked at it thanks appreciate all the wonderful insight

Yes, we do assume a lot, or we take nothing for granted.

Believe what he meant to say was no, that won't work.

As Jim states, if the engine was timed correctly and the pin goes in then it is close to TDC.
Verify with the flywheel timing mark, of course.

right so if you can see TDC mark on flywheel through trans hole and not messing with timing other than strickly working on IP wouldn't it be somewhat of an easy swap? or am i looking at this through too much of a tight lens?

That's the right thing to do but you still need to follow the part of the timing belt procedure on how to set the tensioner properly. That is why i posted the timing belt pdf for you.

You are going to need to pop the sprocket off the camshaft and then at some point torque the sprocket back on. You really want the camshaft index/lock tool to be there to ensure it stays in the correct position. The crank is easy to see whether it's in position or not.
