Question Crankshaft Timing Mark ? help please

hey guys i started a timing belt change on my forenza but one of the diagrams i found online has nothing to do with what i see on my forenza , the crankshaft pulley has a little mark on it but what do i line it up to ? is it the timing belt metal plate? or that pointy needle looking thing that comes out of the metal plate? please help!

The notch on the crank should line up with a v-shaped notch on the bottom of the timing belt cover if I remember correctly to indicate top dead centre.

ouch.... did they bend from just trying to crank it? Or did the motor actually start? That really sucks man.. Are you pulling the head off and changing the valves yourself?
