The timing marks are stamped into the steel pulley and flywheel and there should be a pointer attached to the engine. Degreasing the engine with GUNK and power washing it should uncover them.
I'm pretty sure it's crucial to have the engine timed to TDC as it relates to the end of compression/beginning of power stroke, and NOT the end of exhaust stroke.
With gas engines I do the following, to determine the TDC, by removing the #1 plug and insert a long straw, while turning the motor by hand watch for the maximum height of the straw, this will give you a TDC but knowing if its on the exhaust or compression stroke can only be determined if you were watching the closure of the intake valve indicating the begining of the next power stroke. Once you have this set look for the timing marks again. if you can't find them pick up a service manual at the library or autoparts store for photos and instructions.

1) timing belt - see the small dot on tooted crank (small) pulley and match this with a notch ^ on engine body. Align the 'F' on overhead camshaft front pulley with lower crank shaft (small pullet). You should also alight the top pulley with a ^ on right side of big pulley when facing engine from front
In case of diesel pump:
2) cam belt - alight the dot mark on small camshaft pulley with notch ^ on tappet cover. Move and hold pump pulley and alight it with dot on this pulley to dot mark on plate to which pump is bolted.
