16V Timing Marks

Are the marks on the camshaft sprockets supposed to line up with each other when the crankshaft is at TDC?. My crankshaft pointer looks like it's at 20 degrees when the camshaft marks are lined up. Also, is the distributor rotor supposed to be centered/ pointing to the marking on the distributor housing at TDC? Any help would be appreciated.

At TDC the marks on both cam sprockets should be aligned parallel to the surface of the head and next to each other. The center on the rotor should be aligned with the PUNCH mark on the distributor housing.
