im replacing the water pump and the twin cam markings seems to have moved when I loosened the timing belt and was wondering how they should line up?

Hello -

I only show a GS 300 not a 350. For the GS 300...........

Timing marks on camshaft sprockets must align with timing marks on No. 4 timing belt cover. See Fig. 12 . If conditions are not as described, rotate crankshaft clockwise one complete revolution clockwise

Also, it looks like you may have a recall on your vehicle. The dealer may fix this for free. Please contact the dealer service department, give them the VIN number of your car and have them check on this to see if it applies to you.
