Setting Cam Timing

Some of you guys probably don't go into the motor rebuild forum but you still may know how to do this. How the he!! do you set the cam timing on these motors? I have no "Z1" mark on my pulley. There is no mark on the cam sprocket anywhere. How do you know when the motor is at TDC? How do you know when #1 is TDC and then where do you set #4? I just got the longblock back together and went to set the cams. After an hour of staring at it like a complete idiot I figured I would share my stupidity with the board and hope that someone has a link to the rosetta stone of how to do this. Is there a video anywhere on the web that I can watch to see how someone would actually set the timing on a 1985 930 Porsche??? Ugh... and I thought the hard part was over.
