Well all the marks are on the block then on the pulleys,just line those up. The only thing you have to find is Top Dead Center, which If I remember might be every 2 rotations on the crankshaft pulley, the crankshaft pulley might have a homemade mark on it, like a line, which just has to line up with the mark on the timing belt cover....
I'ma keep looking for a diagram, I know there around here....

"Just did a 95 2.3L ranger timing belt. Not hard but the camshaft pulley and oil pump pulley both have 2 marks on them so it can be confusing. You have to make sure your on the right one. Cam Pulley lines up on the triangle shaped mark. oil pump pulley lines up on the diamond shaped mark. The marks on the inner timing cover will match these also if you look closely. Hope this helps"(FordForum.com).
SOHC, hope it helps for the 2.3


yum thats good rep power lol. j/k

I am in the process of doing a 2001 2.3 so using this information you have provided, if the cam is a triangle on the block, the triangle should be used on the cam pulley indicator correct; same with the oil pump? Also on the crank, how do I know I am TDC before intake or exhaust? I am afraid it will be 180 out and I will have to take back apart.

Mostly, you are posting on an oldish thread... but:
Also on the crank, how do I know I am TDC before intake or exhaust? I am afraid it will be 180 out and I will have to take back apart.

The crankshaft & pistons don't know whether they are compressing or exhausting. They may be both.. Any way, the crankshaft needs only to have the #1 piston at TDC, in either case. However, the cam & timing needs to know it is the end of compression or exhaust, so they have to be set individually. The cam with the triangle in place will put the #1 valves with the intake having closed, and the exhaust ready to open next, and the pump drive will put the sensor at #1 ... So the crank does not care! Whoopeee!!!
