No marks to align camshafts, set crankshaft at TDC, align camshaft as shown, to align, lobs on cylinder #1 have to be pointing out at 45 deg, on the other end of camshaft's will be a slot on each one insert some thing through both as shown, to hold camshaft's in place.
there isnt marks!the cam pulleys have do nothing with timing!remove the valve cover and see in the other end of the camshafts and find two eccentric cuts!turn the crankshaft to the top dead point on the cylinder 1 the two cuts must be in the same line on the upper or lower side.you need aspecial tool to lock the camshafts and another to lock the crankshaft!this is the timing procedure!now you can change anything you want!note!the cam pulleys are conejointed to the camshafts!no marks no pins no safe pins etc.isnt difficult but complicated simple!
This is a very very easy timing belt setup. first off you have to remove the valve cover. Then you have to remove the serp belt. Then remove anything thats in your way of the front cover. after you remove the crank pulley re-install the crank bolt. DO NOT LOSEN THE BOLT FOR THE TENSIONER!!!! now spin the crankshaft until the sproket aligns with the timing mark. now at this point the two camshafts should be aligned. now there is a special tool from ford that holds the cam shafts in place. all it is is a 1/4" peice of metal that goes on the left side of the cam shafts to hold them into place. if you mark the cams you wont need the tool. or if you can find something to fit in the left side of the cams that will work too. anyways after that its just the same steps in reverse. very easy to do.
hope this helps- sounds like someone replaced your timing belt and when they replaced it, they were off by one a tooth or peg on the belt- buy a Haynes manual from Advance Auto parts or go to Advance Auto Parts and look for an OPENED 2003 Ford Focus Haynes. Read the part about installation of timing belts. You DO NOT have to remove the timing belt, just make certain it is correctly lined up with the proper marks. If you are a decent mechanic, you can do this yourself. Unlike cars in the 70's you cannot adjust the timing on today's Vehicles
