Default '88 1.3L ignition timing?

I am looking to check, and adjust the timing on my '88 Samurai. I am not clearly seeing timing marks/TDC marks on the crank/balancer. Can someone share a picture on where the timing marks are?

What have you found to be the best ignition timing for yours? Manual spec says 10*btdc

Look for a hole (possibly covered by a rubber plug) in the bellhousing area .

timing marks on the front balancer are on the top, slightly off center to the exhaust side of the engine Just a metal ear with some lines on it. It's hard to see because it's obscured by the belts and fan pulley.

The one on the bell housing is easier to get at and it's also on the exhaust side of the engine. the housing is oblong with an edge on it looks like a backwards "G" the little edge is where the timing marks line up. 10 deg is where I keep mine set. each notch is 2 deg.
