don't take my word for this but i believe this is how it goes... the notch on the cam gear needs to be faceing straight up... with the cam like that remove the plug for cylinder one and move the crankshaft until the piston reaches its highest point.... also, there's a mark on the flywheel thats used for timeing as well, but im not quite sure how that corresponds to the other marks....

i just finished replacing my head gasket on an 84 GTI and the shop manual said to line up the dimple on the cam even with the top of the head and you also had to line up the intermediate shaft and crankshaft. I am not sure how to line the intermediate and cranksafts but i could tell you in an couple of hours when i will have the book in front of me.

Ok I have it figured out!What you have to do is line up the two upper marks together.Then line up the mark inside the bell housing with the mark on the outside of the trans. housing.And the rotor has to be pointing at the number 1 cylinder wire off of the distributer.
