The valve timing marks are inside the timing chain cover. There is a location dot punched into the camshaft and crankshaft timing gears. The two dots face each other when number one cylinder is at top dead center.

    The camshaft might be 180 degrees out (one full turn). Hopefully the valves are not bent, Sorry I can't give you better news.

Getting to timing chain without tearing down engine 2000 dodge intrepid

I assume you're talking about the 2.7L V6. As you're probably aware (having had it apart before), the timing is properly set by aligning the colored links on the primary timing chain with the marks on the crank sprocket and cam sprockets. The only way I know of to see all these at the same time is to remove the timing cover, and you have to tear the engine apart to remove the timing cover.

I need the engine timing and the crank pulley torque specs.

Once you align the top and bottom timing marks, and install the belt and tight the belt tensioner, you are done, there is no distributor to adjust ignition timing, it is computer controlled. The torque for the crankshaft bolt is 80 foot pounds. Hope this helps, let me know.
