The keyway and or the dot on the crank should be line at 12 oclock. You will see a point on the oil pump housing to go by. On the camshaft the pointer will be at 12 oclock also. Use the O on the camshaft to the top at mark. Be sure to look at the dist. roter to make sure that it is pointing at the #1 spark plug wire. I could get 180 out of time. If you do it right it should start up right away. then you can use a timing light to finish it.
Good Luck

How do I line up the marks for the cam pulley for the Mazda Rustler 1.6 carb to set the correct timming

that little arrow that is cast into the back plate at 12 oclock behind the cam gear should be lined up with a mark between the teeth when the piston is at TDC the crank shaft mark is in line with the keyway in the shaft and will line up with a make ( pointer )in the case behind the bottom gear
to make it easy there should be a small notch in the slinger behind the gear
it is an intereference engine so make sure that the tappet adjustments are let right of so that when turning the cam or crank , the valves will not move and bend on the pistons
the length of the tension spring should be 2.52 " overall length and if not --replace the spring
replace the tension pulley as well
on the long side of the belt opposite the tension pulley apply a load of 22 lbs ( spring balance pulling on the belt) and a deflection of .44-.51" will indicate the correct tension on the belt

Where are the timing marks for a 1998 Nissan sentra gxe

most vehicles have a crank timing mark which sit on the crank pulley,its the big pulley at the bottom of the motor
the cam pulley should also have a mark on the pulley if its belt driven that should line up with a notch on the head or tappet cover
if its chain driven you will need to remove the tappet cover and your cam sprockets will have marks on them that must line up facing each other or facing level with the sides of the head

Setting timing marks

I do not know if you did strip the belt yet or not. If you did not,I will advise you a just easy and good way to do it yourself. String for the stripping,you just remove the outside belts and pulleys,remove the plastic covers of the timing belt. Just put on the crankshaft the pulley bolt and slowly slowly turn the engine until you see all the marks aligned. On the Camshafts the two sprockets do have the letters "E" and "I", E= Exhaust and I= Inlet.means that the inner to dashboard side is the inlet cam and to the vehicle front the exhaust cam. These two cams with the letters must be aligned,with the crankshaft sprocket
having on the side a small groove which mus be aligned with a small point ball behind the sprocket on the cylinder block. There are your marks. Loose the tensioner and remove the belt.

Good Luck!

Blown timimng belt,how do i retime engine when replacing timing belt

Ok first thing is remove the #1 spark plug from engine, then turn your crank until you feel air push out that cylinder that means you are at TDC (top dead center). You will then set your cams to there settings ( I am not sure if this is a inline 4 or v6) so I can't tell you the marks. But the cams pulley will have marks that will align to marks on the head, The crank will have a mark on the pulley and on the block line these up as well. I like to set the top cam marks first then clamp the belt and pulley together with a small clamp to keep the tension. after that is all lined up install the tensioner and make sure you adjust the tensioner it will have two small pin holes that will need to be turned in order to tighten the tension. ( not to loose or belt can skip, not to tight or belt will wine.) Also if the belt snap while driving you probably bent the valves and will have to do a valve job which requires removing the head,

You don't say what car or how many cylinders, so lets try a generic fix. With the tappet cover off, turn the engine until the valves on #1 cylinder rock. At this point the timing mark on your pulley should line up with the timing mark on the casing, if they do not your cam timing is out. Note that when these marks line up, your distributor should be pointing 180 deg. from the #1 plug lead position. You need to turn the crankshaft 360 deg. to get #1 TDC.
