SOURCE: 1980 volkswagen timing marks
With the #1 Piston at TDC there is a mark that you can see through the access hole on the transmission. The cam lobes should both be pointing up on #1 Cylinder. The slot on the right or back side of the cam should be level with the top of the valve cover gasket mating surface on the head. There is a tool to make sure that this is in place, but it is not necessary. There is also a mark for the injection pump that should be lined up with the gasket mating surface. There is also a tool that fits this (I use an 11mm craftsman 1/4 inch drive socket in the holes)
I bought one of my VW pickups cheap because a repair shop didn't line it up correctly and the engine would not run properly.
The directions should be pretty good in the haynes manual.
