Why don't you use setups ?


\startsetups Header:Left
\vbox to \headerheight{\vss
\ruledhbox{\centerline{  \getmarking[chapter][first]  }}

\startsetups Header:Right
\vbox to \headerheight{\vss
\ruledhbox{\centerline{ \getmarking[chapter][first] }}


\dorecurse{4}{\chapter{ch \recurselevel} \section{sec \recurselevel}\page}
