Main timing marks? Open hood, look at the transmission bell housing. You'll see a tan or green plug screwed into the top of the housing near the engine block. Remove the plug by unscrewing it. Look inside you'll see a pointer cast into the bellhousing. Rotate the engine to line up the notch in the flywheel with the pointer. The notch should be TDC, a cast set of bumps (center bump) usually indicates the advanced timing 6D BTDC.

Timing marks are always on the crankshaft, usually on the pulley closest to the block. This is because the timing must be based upon the position of the number one piston, which is connected to the crankshaft.
