I went ahead and went for it. I lined up what I had assumed was the timing mark (red arrow) and the left side of the notch (blue arrow) because these two lines become parralell. Since there was NO perpendicular line that would line up with the center of the notch at a right angle. It was the only thing that made since. I put it all back together and took a BIG chance turning the key and to my pleasure it started right up and runs and idles perfect. No Service Engine Soon light or anything. I must have nailed it.
So, for the Google spider in case anyone is searching for this information:
1999 Mitsubishi Gallant ES , 4 cylinder . Line up LEFT side of crankshaft pulley timing notch with the timing mark line on the engine block to make the lines paralell but in line with each other like this ----> <----- .
Before taking off the timing belt, turn the crankshaft with a breaker bar until the camshaft timimg mark AND the oil pump pully timing mark are BOTH on their marks. (At a cetain cycle, the camshaft timing marks being on do not coincide with the oil pump pulley timing marks being on. You have to cycle it around until they are BOTH on their marks.) At this point the crankshaft timeing mark should be lined up with timing mark on the engine block too. Take off the timing belt. You can now turn the crankshaft some to get the balance shaft belt up and under the flange on the crankshaft gear (pulley, whatever). You should not even need to turn it a full turn, only like 3/4 turn or so to get the balance shaft belt on. Pay attention to this. Mare sure you don't loose track of how far you turned it either clockwise or counter clock wise. After you gotten your balance shaft belt on, turn it back the opposite way you turned it to get the balance shaft belt on and line up the left side of the notch on the crankshaft pulley with the timing mark on the engine block.
Now after the balance shaft belt pulley mark is lined up with it's mark on the engine block (no picture for that one, sorry, the pulley auto aligns itself to the mark because it's wieghted that way, you'll see what I'm talking about), the crankshaft pulley timing marks, the camshaft pulley timing marks and the oil pump pulley timing marks are all lined up you can put the new timing belt on. And make sure there is no slack whatsoever on the right side of the belt that comes off the oil pump pulley and goes straight up to the camshaft pulley. The left side slack is taken up by the tensioner.
See picture in orginal post for the crankshaft pulley timing marks. Oh, and one more thing. Make sure your oil pump pulley doesn't turn around out of wack from where it was when it was in sync with the camshaft timing marks being on. Consult your Haynes manual. Before you put the new timing belt on, turn the oil pump pulley a little clockwise from it timing mark and see if it moves back by itself sort of counter clockwise to it's timing mark on the engine block. The thing is weighted. If it does, then it's still in synce with the camshaft. If you move it clockwise off it's timing mark and it stays there and doesn't move itsefl back to the timing mark on the engine, it's out of sync with the camshaft.
