SOURCE: timing marks
This is a little hard, but you can do it the old fashoined way. You take the FIRST Spark plug out and stick a screw driver inside that hole. You crank the top gear until the little hash mark is all the way up. You will need two people to do the second step. the next thing you have to do is crank the bottom while using the screwdriver to make sure that the first cylinder is all the way up. Its very simple, but if it aint all the way up, your car wont start. You have to put the timing belt on those gears WITHOUT MOVING them AT ALL.

there is a little mark on the crankshaft which you line up with the 'o' mark on the casing ..
remove the cam cover and look at the cam you should see a nob on the cam about 3 th lob and that should be facing just left of the engine ..
if you have a turbo there is two notchs on the injection pump pully ..if turbo there is a 't' mark on the rear of the cover the notch on the pully should mark up with the 't'..
the timing is set..
