How do you change the timing belt on a 1988 1.9L Ford Escort Station Wagon and where are the timing marks to line up Thanks?

The top cam gear should have an arrow cut into the inside of the gear this points straight up at 12 o clock and the crank pulley has two groves cut into the inside lip one large and one small the smaller on is 0 degrees and is to the left side of the bigger one, that is to be lined up with the timing tab above it where that too has a notch cut in at 0 degrees again at almost 12 o clock. very simple.
