Following the discussion in the comments, I can now see what you are asking.
It looks like there is a pointer lower down in the shadow of your photo. As you described in the comments you should use the V and the pointer like a gun sight. This is to ensure you are looking from the correct angle. You should be able to get all 3 markers in alignment.
If it makes things easier to see, add a white paint spot on the lower pointer and on the pulley.
You need to get them perfectly aligned, not just somewhere near.
