Question about Cars & Trucks
2 questions come to mind has the new sprocket got the same pitch ( distance between teeth ) as the crank shaft sprocket as this will make the chain jump out after a few degrees of movement. A quick check is to wrap the chain around the sprocket and see if there are links that do not sit fully around the teeth. There are different pitches for teeth and chains ( BA-- AM and metric)

Well, I certainly cannot help you locate the timing marks, but I should be able to point you in the right direction.
The first thing you will want to look for is a triangle "tooth" or some form of pointing device on the crank wheel. If you find that, then you will know where your timing marks are.
If your vehicle is anything like my old Nissan, you will not be this lucky. The way I found mine was to take a non abrasive cloth and a cleaning agent(Bug and Tar remover works amazingly) and clean off everything around the crank wheel. Once you have methodically done that, use a white non permanent marker all the way round your crank wheel and beside it, then re-attach everything, and remove your spark plugs.
Once your spark plugs are removed, put cylinder one's spark plug into the plug wire to create a connection (its easier this way) and have a buddy crank the car while you aim your timing gun at the white marker you painted with. This worked for be because the timing light gave a sharp contrast to the area and I was able to discern the markers. Make dammed sure you don't have your spark plugs in if you try this method. Bad things happen when you compress all that fuel for a while then that baby fires up.

When it jumped timing, it's possible that the piston's hit the valves and they may be bent. Have a compression test done and see if you have cyclinder pressure.
