The timing marks are on the cam gears in which the timing belt rides on. Quick check is to get number one cylinder to top dead center then remove the distributor

    the belt cannot "ride on the cam gears!" belts run on pulleys. further he wants to time his ignition with a timing light why would he pull the distributor if only tweeking the distributor would align to specs?

Patrol toyota hilux 2000 how to fix timming

if you can remove the timing cover and try to bring the engine using your hand with a tool by turning the crank shaft with the engine off and battery terminal off,to the timing marks. surely the camshaft and crank shaft sensors do have some marks. if it is diesel engine also the fuel pump has mark too. If you aligned the marks and are in a correct place then you problem is something else,If the marks are not aligned then you timing is wrong and try once more to fit it whilst in a correct place.

dont worry about that you will have to turn the motor over 40 to 50 time before those timing belt marks line up again if your pulley marks line up correctly thats all you have to worry about
