1990 BMW 325i Question: find timing marks and set timing

Im attempting to replace the timing belt and have already taken the parts off the engine. How do I find the timing marks and how are they supposed to be lined up before i put the new timing belt on? -
Answer 1
My best suggestion would be to get a service manual from your local parts store. I mean you are willing to replace the timing belt yourself but not willing to get a manual? -
