Correct face the cam lobes facing apart. You should have gotten a cam alignment tool. There are indents on the cams opposite of the cam gears you stick the alignment tool there and stick the belt on. Of course after cylinder 1 is at TDC.

By the way their are a million zx2 sites all over the place. Check my sig for one of them.
