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.

there are timing marks on both cam pullys and a timing mark on the crank pully as well. you have to have them all aligned to the marks on the inner timing cover, which is virtually strait up and down on all three. and you must also match the timing lines on the new belt up with the timing marks on the pullys. be sure not to roll any of the pullys backwards (counterclockwise) or you could cause some major valve damage.
