Well if it is a 4 cylinder the timing marks would be small hole in camshaft lined up with little dot on head at 12 o'clock position and the crank with the pulley on should line up with 0 on the timing indicator. If it is a 6 cyl then the marks would be- camshafts both with dots up and lined up with indicaters on heads and crank timing mark on 0 with the harmonic balancer installed. Hope this helps.

On the crank pulley there is a "V" cut out on the pulley, on the top pulley there should be a hole in the pulley spokes, behind the pulley you should see a notch, not a weld it will look different, line that up with the hole, and put timing belt on carefull not to turn pulleys, then you will have to start all over.

If u cannot obtain the itming marks, u mite have to time the engine by first pricnciple. Ensure that #1 cylinder is @ TDC (compression stroke). Install the camshaft making sure that the cam lobes for #1 cylinder are on the lower side and not on the tip of the cam. Also when installing the distributor, ensure that it's set to spark @ #1 cylinder. In modern day vehicles, the distributor can only be fitted one way so theree is no need to time the ignition timing via distributor. If this is too much, u can check the crankshaft & camshaft sprocket for distinct timing markings . This should be checked when the components are clean

Fist thing ... manually put crank at top dead centre number one cylinder
put socket on crank bolt , turning clock wise..
there is a mark on crank, align this with the 0 on the cover of the timming cover to crank.
trusting have aready have all timming covers of .
there is a hole at the 12 o clock postion on cam sprocket , take a light and a mirror look threw hole you should see a "u" shape mark if you can see it
it's where you want it.
as long as the mark on the crank is a "0" and the cam is at the "u"
you should be fine to take the t belt off..
loosen off tensioner , carefuly not to move crank/cam.
ones the tensioner is loose slip off belt.
reinstall new belt , make sure you replace tensioner spring , you should of got one with belt.
make sure when installing belt that the slack of the belt is on the back side
this will be taken up by the tensioner.
i hope this helps
really should have a tech do this job , if not properly timmed, coud damage engine, or run rough.
