HELP!

I have a 1996 Ford Ranger 2.3 L and I am currently in the process of installing the timing belt as I am writing this. I understand how to line up the marks on the crank with the plastic cover/TDC, but there are to other pulleys with marks on them and then the same marks are on the plastic part mounted to the engine. Do I line up those marks/shapes with the shapes/marks on the pulleys to the plastic part mounted to the engine and then would I be good to go as long as my crank is set at/TDC? Just want to make sure before I put this all back togather and may have an any issues.

Thank you for any help out there!

So what I can see of the very small illustration is that the triangle mark on the top sprocket is to match the inner cover and the diamond mark on the lower sprocket to the right is to match the intercover cover diamond mark, is that correct?

Thanks!
