Markings are usually on the Cam and Crank Sprokets. Not sure what car you are asking about but Most cars have interference engines which means If the Belt broke and wasn't being changed during regular maintenance then you probably bent some Valves in the Head. You have an expensive problem now
You need to purchase a Haynes Manual or better. They are very common in your nearest chain part store. Like Autozone, Advance, Napa. More than likely you will have to set the crankshaft at TDC. "top dead center" and allign the two marks with the cam shaft! Watch when you put tension on the belt it will move the camshaft sprocket! And throw it back out of time.
1993 Toyota 2.2 you have valve clearance,meaning if you broke the belt driving you just broke a belt and NO VALVE DAMAGE. On the cam gear line that dot on top with the mark at the top if the cylinder head it a little dipple.As for the crank just line up the dots.There is nothing confusing turn one at a time or both at a time.
Sounds like timing belt not on correctly. Check timing marks are aligned correctly when installing timing belt. This vehicle should have 2-3 marks to be aligned when installing belt.marks should be on cam gear/ crankshaft gear and intermediate shaft if engine is equipped with it.
TIMMING BELT MARKS
NEED MORE INFO ON ENGINE 4 CYL OR 6 CYL
ALSO IF YOU JUST REPLACED THE HEAD ASSEMBLY MEANS YOU BENT THE VALVES WHEN THE BELT BROKE. TIMMING MARKS ARE DIFFERANT ON MANY MAKES PURCHASE A CHILTON MANUAL FOR THE YEAR AND MAKE OF YOUR CAR THESE MANUALS ARE GREAT AND TAKE THE GUESS WORK OUT OF THE TIMMIMG MARK ISSUE
If the timing belt broke, he should take it to have it replaced because theres more than likely to be bent valves in the head. Heads should be checked before putting another timeing belt on. If there is valve damage, then more than likely there damage to the pistons too.
