Someday I'll put something like a Superttech pully on there, but what I have suffices just fine for now.
I did you one better. I used a file and notched the outer edge of the pully at 10 degrees BTDC and again at 35 degrees after using a template like you described.

Holds up better than permanent marker or paint when using engine degreaser sometimes wipes the marks off.
