Hello and thanks for choosing JustAnswer.com!

 

 

 

To ensure an accurate answer, could I get the model and year of vehicle along with the size of engine please?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.

1994 ford laser s

z5 1.5 1500cc

Sorry for the delay. There should be two regular timing marks and one "Z" timing mark. For the cam, the "Z" mark needs to face straight up on the cam pulley and the other two timing marks should line with the cylinder head upper surface. For the crankshaft, the timing is correct when the locating pin on the pulley boss (pictured below) and "Z" mark on the cam are facing straight up, and the timing marks are aligned with the cylinder head upper surface.

Here is a free PDF manual for the Mazda Z5 engine. Page 25 I believe is where you need to look at on it.
