ALINEMENT OF CRANKSHAFT

Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Mazda MX3 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 215000 miles

Where are the cam gear marks suppose to be and what do they look like? ( To replace the timing belt). The waterpump was changed and the cam gears were marked before the belt was removed, but after reassembly and starting the motor the timing (idle) was off. Now everything is back together and the marks (the ones we did) can't be found and there seems to be 3 stamped marks (on the front of the cam gears) and i'm unsure of which ones to use, and as to what location these should be.
Help, it's turing out to be a 3 day project.
Thanks
