The basic principle is that it would use the customary or legal standard units for the particular country.

For instance in the US, although the metric system is legal, the American imperial (modified British) system is still used. Hence boilermaking specs and drawings would usually be in inches, feet, US ounces and pounds etc.

In Australia it has all gone metric long since, and units are in metres, mm, grams and kilograms etc. Boilermaking as a trade is nearly dead, but would be metric.

In the UK all packaging and food sales must be in metric units, but otherwise metrication is self-regulating and more or less voluntary. Because of the vast amount of equipment and tooling which has still imperial units inherent in it, much manufacturing there still uses imperial units. Boilermakers could see either system.

I'need digrames and how to fixes timing belt

You are going to have to line both of your intakes to the exhaust so probabely have to loosen the camshaft gear bolt on the timing belt side . And since you don't have the mark for top dead center you have to put the cover back on and line the crankshaft on the safe mark then when you pull it off take a marker and put a mark on the block that aligns with a tooth so you can make sure it hasn't moved when you put the belt on. I also marked the intakes when I aligned them so I made sure nothing slipped
Good Luck
