Timing for a 96 mercury mystique 2.0 4cyl. L4

You are quite right, there are no timing marks on the camshaft pulleys. One of the marks on the crankshaft pulley, the one that is furthest counter-clockwise, lines up with a raised mark on the oil pan,at about 5 O-Clock as viewed from the front. The special tool to position the camshafts is a straight bar that aligns the slots on the rear of the camshafts. These are supposed to be aligned before the belt is removed. If the engine is turned without the belt installed, some of the valves can be damaged. Hope this helps.
