It's more to it than aligning the marks since the cam pulleys turn about three times or more to one turn of the camshaft on this engine. You need to find someone that is experienced on this vehicle.

1997 honda 160i civic ,the c/head made a rattling sounds I took of the valve cover off n I discover, one valve does not operate,give me some advice

Its a job for a mechanic!.
You will need trained help to pinpoint the problem (camshaft/valve gear) and the cause but anything of this degree is time and money. Its possible a good breakers yard maybe able to get you something off a similar model.

The Nippon-Denzo Distributor's are known to have problems. I had the same issue for 3 months where it would cut out and sometimes, actually kill my car. Finally I spend the $200 and put a new Distributor in the car and it fixed my problems. there are 2 different Distributors for your car, make sure you get the right one or it will not work.

Honda ballade 150. Cam belt broke. The camshaft and crankshaft are not at top dead center. Which do I line up first! Before putting on belt!

The crank needs to be at number one top dead center. There should be marks behind the cam gears to line them up with. remember to keep all the slack in the belt on the tensioner side of the belt as you install it!!!

Where are the timing belt marks located

dohc h23 engine right? there should be two lines etched into the cam gears that will line up with a little arrow or triangle just below the top of the head under the valve cover cant miss it. also the cam gears should have one of the spokes engraved up which will be aimed at 12 o clock up on the crank there should be for little notches cut into the big pulley one lone mark and three in a group line up that middle notch in the trio with a timing mark just behind the pulley on the block or plastic timing cover goodluck
