The timing marks are 5 degrees apart commencing with top dead centre (and
this is from the factory manual).

Be careful of too much reliance on the marks.  The bottom pulley has a
rubber centre, designed to remove harmonics from the crankshaft and there
can be a slight turning.  If in doubt find top dead centre by taking No 1
spark plug out, establishing top dead centre and then seeing where that is
in relation to the timing marks and then 'lay off' the error, if any.
