On vehicles that I haven't been able to see the timing mark on the pulley I use a piece of chalk and mark it by feel. Once you have located the notch, go over it with the chalk several times then wipe the area with a rag. That will take off the excess chalk but the chalk will stay in the notch and that is what you will see with the timing light. Hope this helps.
