You don't need one. Get a T belt from toyota. It has 3 white lines on it and and arrow mark. 2 lines are solid and one is broken. Put the arrow facing away from the engine. The cam gears have a dot punched into them near a certain tooth. This is where the solid white lines will line up with. The crank gear will have a dot also. It will line up at 90 degrees from the top, towards the front of the car. This is where the broken line will match up with. With the belt installed with all lines on their proper dots and arrow away from the engine, you valve timming is correct.
Of course you need to remove and compress the tensioner also. I assume you know this already since you didn't ask.

most cars I've encountered will run even if the timming is off a tooth just not very well. Some will start and stall, will run but lack power and miss

SOURCE: i need to know the
the timing marks for the cams are on the rear timing cover (behind the cam sprockets). They are very hard to see, especially the rear cam. Align the cam sprocket marks with rear timing cover. Because this engine is mounted at a 60 degree angle, you must use the marks. Rear cam should feel compression while front cam is free!!
