SOURCE: need to know what mark
Get one of the repair manuals for your engine from one of the auto parts stores in your area. Most community libraries also have a few books about vehicle repair, and you can copy the pages of the manual that deal with YOUR car/engine.

its not just the camshaft timing marks you set up, you also have to have the crankshaft timing mark set right to or you may damage your engine
check the internet for the right timing procedure for you model car ok

there are special tools pin to lock crank in correct position and cams have flat plate that goes across into both at rear of cams small section goes up from memory, the cam gears have no dowel pin/locating pin to camshaft you do bolts up last when all are locked in position and grenade pin (locking)pin in tensioner is removed and chain is tight then hold cams with shifter or spanner(wrench) on cam flats and do up cam gear to camshaft bolts on each cam.
hole in front cover just above crank pulley at 11O clock, blind blanking plug must be removed to put in chain tensioner pin, crank blanking plug on your left side when looking at crank pulley(side of block) remove and locking pin goes into there when at TDC no1. and cams should be in position to lock with plate as described above.may not be any timming marks on chains or gears due to the locking tools needed and relied on for correct position.
good luck if you feel confident.
some Mazda dealerships may lend tools if you ask nicely or know some one.

SOURCE: I need the timing marks
please forgive me but as iam getting older my memory isnt what it was but i seem to remember two slots in the back of the cam but it could be a mark on the rear cam cap,if not sure here then do it with no timing marks -- its easy make sure no1 piston is down halfway so valves clear pistons then look at the cams and start with the inlet no1 which should be just closed and the cam lobe moving away from the tappet ,and now the exhaust will be coming around to make contact with the tappet ,then look on the cam /cam caps keyway or whatever for anything resembling the timing marks .Sorry i just do so many makes of vehicle i cannot remember them all i just use my 6 yrs or motor vehicle technicians course ,although its all out of date now the basics are still the same and i apply this basic to any vehicle and it always works .right last question this one iam off to cultivate the garden and relay my irrigation pipes
