Hope no one minds if I Hyjack this thread . . . but its similar problem.

I'm replacing both balance shaft belt & timing belt, as my balance belt went to shreds. I checked all the rollers and it appears that the Balance Belt Idler locked up and shredded the inside teeth on the belt.

Where I'm having trouble is getting the timing lined up (with confidence) at TDC.

I have the Cam Gear lined up on its TDC mark, but aren't there two TDC's for this one - compression and exhaust?

I have the manual, but I can't see a thing down in that tiny little hole at the back of the engine. Shouldn't there be another mark on the Crankshaft drive gear at the front of the engine - where the timing belt is driven from?

I know there's got to be another way. If I had a compression gage I'd just put that on #1 cylinder.
