It's supposed to be on the flat curvy part of the balancer, engine side of the pulleys. The index pointer is supposedly a pyramid-shaped blob on the front of the timing cover.
Now, I don't know if I went blind that day, or if my neck just doesn't twist the right direction(s), but I couldn't find either one of them on Momsy's 91 wagon. Maybe I was supposed to remove the right fender and cut off the frame rail to get to it? Even the Haynes manual has "drivebelts removed for clarity".

i removed the outer fender cover. cleaned the balancer, and then i saw everything. what were they thinking! also needed to remove the alt bracket to twist the damn distro in. its all done, and runs great! mommys happy, and i got my car back. in another 3 years im gonna have to do the distro again.
