there isn't a marker, you need a cam lock tool,
here is a member on this forum who rents that tool. Forgot the name...

OK, so what do you lock the cam in relation to? or is it a case of a dial gauge on the cam follower type way a-la race engine setup?

The cam locking tools replace the upper halves of the cam bearings on cylinder number one. There's two of them, one for each cam. They can be bought from EBspares (so I'm told, I'm not an UK resident) You might also need a gauge to establish the TDC on cylinder NO 1

Hope this helps
