Question 98 Pathfinder timing marks

Disregard....found 'em. Just hard to see the light on them.

Hello Nissan Smart Folk...I have an easy one, complete with illustrations.

I've replaced my distributor and want to make sure my ignition timing is looking good. When I shine my light down at the pulley/flywheel I can't see any ticks/marks and I can hardly even get an angle down there at all with the light. For that matter I'm not entirely sure which of the two belt pulleys on the crank I should expect to see them. Also, are the ticks on the inside of the raised outer edge of the pulley, or on the top of it?

I've attached a picture as best I could take to show what I'm looking at. Even getting in there to feel for the marks isn't easy.

Can someone please clear this up for me? Much appreciation!

Should be at position 1. If you put a little white or red touch-up paint on the 0 degree mark, it'll make it a lot easier to see.
