on the cam there is a little dot that is machined in the cam gear. make sure that it is at top dead center( remember that the motor sits at a slight angle so it wont look like the very top by looking strait at it. you will have to take the crank pully off to see the mark on the crank gear. the mark is an indentation on the back of the pully. line that up with the little arrow next to the gear. after that is set put the belt on making sure that you don't move the gears. put your pully back on and use a timing light to set the timing at two degrees top side by looking at the marks on the timing belt cover next to the crank pully.

Before changing any timing belt, it is recommended that you first line up the crankshaft timing and the camshaft timing. To get both aligned, you have to rotate the cranshaft twice. After rotating the crankshaft, align the mark to "0". Take note of any other markings and then you cane begin to disassemble the timing belt. It would be a great help if you can get some cam locking tool to hold the cam in place if you have a DOHC engine

There are 4 camshaft sprockets that must be aligned perfectly for the engine to function properly, and if the timing is off very far the engine can be completely destroyed. A special alignment tool is available that holds the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets in alignment while you replace the timing belt and adjust the tensioner pulleys. That's about the only way to properly align the timing sprockets, and the only way approved by the manufacturer.
