    TDC can be determined the old fashioned way with a long (not sharp pointed) implement done the plug hole of cyl 1.. there is also a bung on the gearbox that can be removed to see a timing mark on the flywheel

    Cam sprocket has a notch in it that can be aligned with a notch on the cam cover... you need to remove the plastic cam belt cover to see this...
