Unhappy 2.5-16 camshafts timing alignment

I need help with the timing adjustment of the camshafts and crackshaft. I know that cyl. N1 must be at TDC but where are the markings on the cam shafts ? I can see that both cams have one tiny hole (dot) but where is the marking on the head ? Also it seems that the gears of both cams have been disassembled and then put in again so they my also be mounted incorrectly.

P.S. Today I tried to start the car but instead of sucking from the intake it blows so I suspect that it is a timming alignment problem.

P.S.S Can anyone provide instructions for timming alignment or pictures of the 16 cams when cyl 1. is at TDC.

The 2 small holes will be next to each other at the center of the head even with the sealing surface of valve cover.
