SOURCE: 2.0 L Timing Belt Marks
hi if its a twin cam ford engine you wont find marks on the cam pulleys.what you have to do is take off the cam cover and look at the back of the cams you will see slots in them ,what you have to do is you can buy the timing kit for the engine at the main dealers or you can make you own using a flat piece of metal 5mm thick and100 mm long this fits into the two slots at the rear of the cams to lick them in place and th crankshaft pulley mark should be in line also.best of luck.

below the cam gear on the side where your belt snapped is where the V notch that is an upside down cut away on the metal backing plate behind the gear nearest the cylinder head matches up with a cast block with a ball bearing in the middle in the 6 o clock position on the cylinder head. looking at it on the right side it is a cast almost machined straight edge up and down. On the left of the block it is something like C shaped. if you drew a circle and then on the right side cut one third of it off with a straight line, put a steel ball in the middle about 5 mm thick, that is the mark for the engine timing and you need nothing else, no TDC on the Crankshaft etc.
on the back of the fuel pump flywheel there is a key way type notch square looking cast into the wheel. it is about 2mm x 2mm in size.
this gets lined up with the cast aluminium mounting for the injection pump.
there is on the outer most point of the casting that the injection pump in mounted on a horizontal line cast into the very outer most point possible of the casting.
This horizontal line matches up with the key way type notch on the fuel injection pump flywheel.
It still needs to be timed but you wont bend any valves breaking the injection pump.
