Download a manual for a 2001 or 2 YZ426. The timing sets up the same way, and the manual uses drawings rather than photos, so they're much easier to see.

With the crank at TDC, the E mark on the exhaust cam should align with the gasket surface of the head at 9:00 o'clock, and the I mark on the intake should align with the head at 3:00. Be sure to check it with tension on the chain.
