Default 2000 Volvo S80 Timing Belt Marks NEED HELP

Hello everyone long time lurker, first time poster. I was wondering about the timing marks on a 2000 Volvo S80 T6. I have seen two versions of the timing marks and I need to know which one is correct

1: The mark is the valley between two teeth (is there a mark for this in the valley, i think its this one cause the CVVT is in the right spot but the oil pump housing mark looks different...the oil pump housing looks like diagram 2, what gives???)

2: The mark is on the flange that secures the harmonic damper.

I am confused and do not want to muck this ladies engine up.

More specifics:

2000 Volvo S80 T6
B6284T 2.7 Turbo Automatic

113k miles (original t-belt D: )

You will have to look and see which one you have.
Also if you remove the outer part of the crank pulley(One the serp. belt rides on) it will be alot easier to see the marks.
You will still have to use the flashlight and look closely.

Thank you for your response Tech! I guess I was unclear. My question is this:

My cam gears look like the first pic but the oil pump housing looks like the second pic. Should I just focus on lining up the cam gears like the 1st pic (yes i know its cvvt...) and lining up the crank gear like the second?

I guess a side question is in order too. Is the mark on the crank TDC? I could just spin the piston until TDC and then I would know what the mark would look like...

Im not 100% sure it is TDC.
I would line up the cams and unless the timing is off the crank should be lined up.

You can't see the mark on the crank with the harmonic balancer on. You CAN feel it though. It's a small bump or tit on the front of the crank gear. Front being the side closest to the harmonic balancer. When I did my 00 T6 recently I lined up the cam markings, then felt for the bump, on mine it lined up with a tooth on the sprocket and not between them. I colored that tooth with a paint marker so I could see it when I spun the engine. It's definitely a good feeling to know that crank gear is in the right spot, even if you know it should be.
