timing mark is on flywheel for crank and on the rear end of the cams under the rocker cover.be carefull with this as the pulleys do not have keyways and can come loose resulting in smashed valves and piston.make sure retaining bols have locktite or better still araldite on the threads and use a impact gun on them.fairly easy job to do though,make sure you remove tensioner though and remove the dust cover and give a little drop of oil and some new grease then push seal cover back on ,saves the cost of a new bearing as these are not cheap.

Not sure if it is possible to have it run smoothly by being off a tooth.
The hash marks on the cam pulleys line up with the timing belt cover that goes over those pulleys. Should be two notches in the cover.
As for the lower marks...those aren't really visible till the lower aux. belt pulley is removed. Then you'll have a clear view of the line up marks. One on the inside and one on the outter area of the pulley itself.
When you put the t-belt on...it is a good idea to replace the tensioner as well.
Also when you have the new belt on...adjust the tensioner so that the handle looking thing is centered between the two notches that hold the tensioner in place to the block.
After putting all that together, its a good idea to rotate the timing belt two to four rotations till the marks all line up again. That will let you know if you are hitting the valves or not.

the 2 single dots on the inside of the gear(side facing the rear of the motor) When the gears mesh together the 2 dots should line up.
