No marks to align camshafts, set crankshaft at TDC, align camshaft as shown, to align, lobs on cylinder #1 have to be pointing out at 45 deg, on the other end of camshaft's will be a slot on each one insert some thing through both as shown, to hold camshaft's in place.

Hi the camshaft timing is two slots cut in the end of the camshafts where a locking plate can be inserted to hold the position of the camshafts the sprockets are not keyed and are a cone fit so dont undo them from the camshafts until you have locked them in the timed position
the crankshaft position should be marked on the pulley wheel and the front cover but are very hard to spot sometimes if you can get underneath the car its easier to spot with a torch from there
or if you remove the front pulley on the flat face of the bottom pulley sprocket is "D" on its side pointing to two marks at the top at the 12 oclock position is about tdc take care as the sproket is only pushed on a short way and can come off when uder belt pressur but is keyed so can be refitted easily or take a spark plug out of number one cylinder and use a long thin blade screwdriver to find top dead center by gently turning the crankshaft pulley until the screwdriver stops moving upwards and befor it moves down is roughly top dead center ,once you have top dead center found and the cams locked in position you have the engine timed and ready for adjustment or a belt change
