Default need info on timing a 2000 ranger 2.5l I4

doing a rebuild on my 2000 ford ranger 2.5l I4. I am stumped on the placement of the pulleys. i have the crank pulley set for dtc and the oil pump facing its mark on the cover. Now the cam has me confused. there are two marks (a triangle and a diamond) and i dont know which on is supposed to point towards the mark on the cover.
