The timing marks are on the crankshaft pulley. slightly loosen the distributor and use a stroboscopic timing light to pulse the correct setting...adjust distributor anti clockwise or clockwise to set. I f you are still running contact breakers please ensure these are set before doing timing.

My engine is a v6 03 land rover freelander timing mark is like showed in diagram on crankshaft but piston is not tdc

On the freelander it's done that way so none of the pistons strike the valves like when taking the cylinder head off as these pistons come very close to the valves on these engines but if you take off the crankshaft pulley wheel the true mark will be on the gear that the cambelt sits around use this mark on this gear if you want no1 piston at tdc and set the cams up with their irrelevant marks at the same time

How to set the timing chain and the gears and cameshaft.

The various gears will all have some kind of "timing mark" on them but every engine is a little different. Best thing to do is to by a manual that details your specific engine's settings. While you are in there it is always a good idea to make sure your tensioner is working correctly before putting it all back together.

If you have installed the dizzy in correctly ie lined it up for TDC you would use a strobe light on the bottom of the engine timing marks, while turning the dizzy to set it up,if no strobe light and it is installed correctly set the dizzy in the centre leave the bolt slightly loose so you can turn the dizzy, start it up and keep turning it fractionally until it sounds like it's running about right.......
