Default Timimg gear marks

I am changing T-belt, tensioner and idler. I am having difficulty finding timing mark on the Intake pulley. Can it be on the back side of pulley shaped like a U. The front side of pulley smooth as baby's butt, but will look more carefully. This is a Volvo S80 2001, 2.9. Thanks in advance for your help.

No, the marks are on the front of both.

Thanks for your answer. Wife looking for magnifying glass now. Need younger eyes I guess.

Found it. Thanks, I would have used the back side U shape and really messed things up. Volvo did not go out of their way to make obvious marks. This guy is a dash hardly bigger than a period

You can get a file and make them a little better. A lot of people paint them or use white out paper correction but that can rub off easier.

OK, got this S80 back together and after several tries it started. Runs a little rough and knocks, but going. This car has 225,000 miles on it. Son-in-law does not want to put a bunch of money into it. If I do nothing else but Timing belt and pulleys, how far down the road do I dare drive, never mind how fast?
