Default Timing belt trouble! please help asap

I'm doing a timing belt, water pump, tensioner, idler swap. Trouble is, i never marked anything before taking it apart. also i took cam gears off amd rotated cams. so basically im starting from scratch. the valve cover is off so i can see what cylinder is doing what. i know tdc but i dont want to be 180 degrees out. please help, i need to get this done. thanks

If your timing marks line up your in time. Make sure all the valves on #1 are closed. There is a how to at the top of tech section if you need it. Start it before you put it all back in case your out a tooth.

Crank one mark only. Cams have two marks. Must use 2.4 side of sprocket and the up side marks!
