The Pully on the crankshaft has a groove which I can align with prodruding mark (like a needle) on the motor body - So I think I got this right and fuel pump pully has a dot which aligns with a line on the body (about 4 o'clock) so I think I got that right.

So, just to verify marking line on camshaft pully wheel should be 90 degrees east (right) in line with camshaft engine cover gascet.
Not sure what the red mark at 12 o'clock is. is it just marking the top? - The top red mark (at 12 o'clock) lines up with two dots on the camshaft pully wheel sprockets and the line on the edge is at 90 degrees to the right (as shown on your diagram) of the 2 dots.

Everything is correct, the line at the top of the camshaft is if the timing belt has a line marking on it.
