    You probably need a lot more than a timing belt. This is an INTERFERENCE engine, if the belt breaks, the piston will hit the valves, so there is a high possibility you need to remove the cylinder head and replace valves also.
    Anyway the marks are on the cam and crank shaft pulleys, both marks has to be at 12 o'clock position with the #1 cylinder at top dead center.
