Glad to be of help.
The keyway should be pointing straight up in order to point the timing mark to the correct 29 1/2 degree alignment. The camshaft pulley and oil pump pulley both have 2 marks on them so it can be confusing. You have to make sure your on the right one. Cam Pulley lines up on the triangle shaped mark. oil pump pulley lines up on the diamond shaped mark. The marks on the inner timing cover will match these also if you look closely.
This one below shows how to align marks
