crank pulley has a notch that lines up with a mark on the block(the keyway will also be up). The camshaft gear has an arrow cut into one of the windows in the middle part of the gear that lines up with a dot on the cylinder head(that arrow will also point straight up).

To line up the timing belt marks for a 97 Ford Escort, the cam and crank sprockets should both be oriented with the timing mark on each sprocket in the 12 o'clock position. The tension should not be released on the belt. Once tension is applied to the belt, that should bring the cam slightly rearward to the position where it's supposed to be. Then check the timing by turning the engine clockwise for two turns.
