We had the timing belt break in our truck engine. When installing the new belt, what timing marks or pointers should you use to set the timing on the cam shaft correctly? Our Mazda Dealer won't give us the information.

At TDC, the camshaft sprocket should have a marker at the 5 o'clock position, crankshaft sprocket keyway should be at the 12 o'clock position (marker at about 1:30 o'clock) and the intermediate sprocket marker should be at the 12 o'clock position also.
