the timing marks on a zx3 are pretty pre fab ounce you have the timing bar(303)and the timing plug remove the crankshaft pulley and the line should be at 11 on a clock line up with o on the word front that along with the bar and plug will be able to properly find tdc for all piston heads.then run it fromthe left cam sprocket all the way round till the tensioner.

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.

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.

take the rocker cover off and look om the cam bearing caos or for a flat slot on the end of the cam that has to be level with the heads

a renault ,real euro car this one ,no problem here at all ,bring the pistons to TDC the bring back a bit so no piston is at the top ,mark it whilst its at the top with a thin white paint mark on the sprocket ,then back it down a bit .fit head because i sure the head bolts are under the cams ,then fit cams and make sure the inlet and exhaust valves are closed on no1 .no4 should be open with the cam lobes pointing down ,now look for the timing marks,they could be a lug on the cam pointing at something or a slot on the back of the camshaft that has to horizontal with the head ,or even a hole in the front pulley that aligns with a hole indent in the head that has an 8mm bolt push in to hold gear wheel in place -then when you find the marks bring the bottom sprocket back to the mark ,the actual mark is on the flywheel as i remember a special tool with a spring loaded pin to locate flywheel is used ,the fit the belt ,seem to remember a white line here on the belt that aligns with the cams a well ?? look iam old and i forget things ,then make sure you turn engine over twice on bottom pulley with a ratchet to ensure valves clear before starting -
