The crank pulley has a mark that lines up with the timing belt cover, so not too useful. If you have the crank pulley off then the mark underneath should be BDC.

The cam pulleys line up with the marks on the top of the backing plate. Best to take a photo first as there are 2 timing marks on each pulley (a really stupid idea), or put some tipex on the correct one before you take the belt off.

Luigi, if you are trying to attach a photo upload to Photobucket then copy and paste the IMG code. Must be the IMG code to display pic.

the timing marks on the cam pulleys line up with marks on the rear cam cover,the timing mark on the crank is about 5 o clock,line the crank up and the cam pulleys are one and a half teeth out,cam belt slipped? cam belt is still tight.

Sounds like it's out. You can get another opinion if you wait long enough, mine seems questionable for some reason.
