Default replacing water pump on 93 camry

I'm changing the water pump on a 93 Camry, 6 cylinder. Is there a way to put the new pump on without taking the camshaft pulleys off? As you may know, there is a cover across the front of the engine behind the pulleys that the top of the water pump has to slip under. After removing the timing belt and the water pump bolts and studs, I was able to force the old water pump out from under the cover. But I don't see how I can possibly get the new water pump on unless that cover can lift out a little bit.

Also, in lining the crank mark and the camshaft pulley marks for TDC (on compression stroke) with the harmonic balancer removed, If I get the crankshaft mark lined up in it's proper place, the camshaft marks are just a little past the notches on that top cover (clockwise to the right of the notches). Is this ok?

Thanks for any help, Pat W Guinness

Don't know if this is possible.

Are you checking the marks before removing the belt? Are you rotating the engine CW 2-times before checking?
