From what I see in my manual,
1.There is a Timing Pointer on the back of the engine. There is a White mark on the flywheel. The white mark must line up with the timing pointer, for Number 1 piston to be at Top Dead Center.
2.Facing the engine, looking at the camshaft sprocket. The sprocket has spokes. On one of those spokes is the word, "UP" in raised letters, or there is a small Dot. As you can see here, the spoke with the word UP goes -> Up.
(Same thing of course if it is a Dot, instead of UP)
On the back of the camshaft gear, (Sprocket), are marks. On the edges of the camshaft gear. These line up with the top edge of the cylinder head. The surface of the cylinder head, where the valve cover bolts down to.
I'm sorry, at present I do not have a website, that I could link you to for a diagram, or photo.

Belt covers need to be on. Timing mark on crankshaft (while on compression stroke) should line up with TDC mark on cover. then Camshaft mark, needs to line up by looking through access hole of cover, and align mark on cam sprocket with pointer on inside of belt cover.

SOURCE: Timing belt specification.
The 1.6l is an interference engine and if the timing belt let loose there is a good chance the pistons met the valves and bent them. I'm thinking that you have a compresson problem either caused by bent valves or having the camshaft out of time with the crank.this link seems to be the best description of where the marks need to be I hope it helps http://honda-tech.com/showthread.php?t=1042236&highlight=d16z6+timing+marks+
