torque sequence for head bolts start in the middle of the head barely tighten this and work your way out doing one bolt toward the back and one toward the front on the second pass torque to 30 ft lbs on the second pass torque to 60 ft lbs dunno about the timing marks

Just to add to previous solution...
Assuming your head is straight & without defects, ensure you follow the correct tightening sequence diagram (see numbers) below:
Front of engine
n 10 8 x
a 4 6 a
e 2 1 s
i 7 9 i
1) Apply a small amount of engine oil to the thread section of the bolt and install so the chamfer of the washer faces upward.
2) In the proper tightening sequence (as shown above), torque bolts initially to 22 ft.lbs. (30Nm)
3) In the proper tightening sequence, now torque bolts to 45 ft.lbs. (61Nm)
4) In the proper tightening sequence, finally torque bolts to 68 ft.lbs. (92Nm)
Now you can Install the Camshaft sprocket and tighten it to 65 ft.lbs. (90Nm), while holding sprocket in place using the correct wrench.
Confirm proper timing mark alignment.

this is the left cam
this is the right cam
this is the crank.
on your tensioner you will have to remove the spring tensioner 2 bolts and put it in a vise thigten it down until you pin hole on it lines up with the pin hole on the tensioner and put a small drill bit etc in the whole to hold it compressed and reinstall it then put your belt on. hope this helps
if you are confused you can go to autozone.com and create an account with them and its free enter your car in it. and you can view the repair manual for free online and will tell you step by step with pics etc.

Sorry for the severe delay.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered question.
I do not know if you still need the answer, but I am going to answer it in case you still do.
Click on the following direct Link. It has the Timing Belt Diagrams with Marks for the Camshaft and Crankshaft that you will need. It also has numerous other helpful diagrams for use.
To answer your direct question: (See Diagram 96F14675 on the Link) The Belt Alignment and Align Mating Marks are the keys.
The Crankshaft "pulley" (actually the Sprocket) has the outer Flange (cover) which needs to be removed to see the Timing Mark.
Again my apologies...
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!
