Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
The above info is a little confusing as I just finished doing a timing belt on a 1998 Camry 2.2L and my experience with the timing marks was different from that described above. The crankshaft timing mark is a little aluminum nub that is on the cast housing behind the crankshaft sprocket at approx the 11 o'clock position and is actually hidden by the outer teeth on the sprocket. Slide the sprocket out a little and it will be easier to see and mark with whiteout or paint. On the sprocket itself I could not find any timing marks so I used the center of the keyway as my reference in setting the crankshaft timing and my engine is running perfectly. The camshaft timing mark is a notch in the aluminum housing around the outer edge of the camshaft oil seal and must be lined up with the hole in one of the spokes of the camshaft sprocket. Use a long box wrench to turn the camshaft clockwise. The notch is at approx the 11 o'clock position since the engine is tilted from vertical as installed in the car. Use a mirror and light to line the hole up with the "notch." I hope this helps.

SOURCE: need marks for timimg belt
On the crankshaft gear there is a VERY small dimple that aligns with a mark on the motor. The mark on the motor (a small triangle) is at roughly 11 o'clock. After you line these timing marks up look at the camshaft gear and you will see that on one of the spokes there is a hole. You need to use a mirror to line this hole up with the dimple on the cover that is behind the camshaft gear. (It is at roughly 1 o'clock) If this hole is 180 degrees from where it should be you need to rotate the motor 1 more revolution at the crankshaft and it should now be lined up, or close. Once lined up I like to take a silver (metallic) Sharpie and make my own mark on the camshaft gear and on the backing plate that is behind it. You can make this mark where ever it is convenient for you. As long as you know where your marks line up, that is all that matters. This way I don't have to use the mirror as often.

timing mark is on flywheel for crank and on the rear end of the cams under the rocker cover.be carefull with this as the pulleys do not have keyways and can come loose resulting in smashed valves and piston.make sure retaining bols have locktite or better still araldite on the threads and use a impact gun on them.fairly easy job to do though,make sure you remove tensioner though and remove the dust cover and give a little drop of oil and some new grease then push seal cover back on ,saves the cost of a new bearing as these are not cheap.

There is only 1 "set" of timing marks. If there is more than 1 then someone has modified your engine components. Here is a picture of where they should be.
