All I ever get is a diacritical mark either left or right from the M.
I would appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction.

It is not you, each font sets metrics for positioning the combining
diacritics--many get it wrong.

For example type "u+004du+0305", leaving the cursor after the 5. Then enter 
an <alt>+x to toggle--that will combine the glyphs, but position of the
overbar will vary by font.

Liberation Serif is just wrong. Dejavu Serif and Dejavu Sans are correct, as
is Linux Libertine G--but coverage is spotty.
Noto Sans and Noto Serif are about the most consistent.

For above marks -- U+0305, or U+035e
For below marks -- U+0332, or U+035f
