The cam mark is behind the pulley on the oil seal plate towards the top of the seal it looks like a small line indentation. Rotate pulley clockwise until you can see it well then take yellow model paint and brush a little into the dent. Now find the hole that's in one of the spokes on the pulley. turning the pulley clockwise line that hole up with the timing mark you should be able to look through the hole and see your yellow timing mark. Heres the tricky part you can't just look through and see it because theres a fender in your way if you don't have the engine out. Use a telescoping mirror and a flashlight put the mirror down in there facing the hole with angle so that you can see it, shine the flashlight into the mirror it will reflect and show you the inside of the hole. Turn pulley until you see yellow mark lined up with hole in the pulley spoke.

The crank is a little more tricky there is a mark on the back edge of the pulley. Turning clockwise line it up with the 0 mark on the belt housing cover, but I prefer to pull the spark plug in the #1 cylinder the closest cylinder to the timing belt and put a 2 foot wooden dowel down into it. Then turn the crank with a strap wrench until the piston reaches tdc "top dead center" the point when your wooden dowel reaches it's highest point before dropping back down. Remember turn clockwise.I just went through misery with a 1991 3SFE trying to time the cam. There are 4 deep cuts in the camshaft bearing cap, one round mark in the cap that lines up perfectly with the timing hole, and then there is the small cut(I think triangular),in the edge of the cap that is the correct timing mark. Do not use the circular mark that is at about 9 o'clock. The correct mark appears at about 11:00 o'clock but in reality it is at 12:00 on the engine because the engine mounts at a slight angle in the Camry. This engine is extremely sensitive to this timing setting. Miss by one tooth on then belt and it may not start. Be sure to turn the crank a couple of times clockwise and check the cam again after the initial belt install to be sure you haven't taken up some slack from the wrong side upon release of the tensioner.
