Pull #1 spark plug out this is front of engine cylinder #1 and insert a very long small screwdriver into spark plug hole then turn motor back and forth a tiny amount maybe a degree or 2 back and forth to get the screwdriver at its highest point. It kinda floats at the highest point for a degree or so this is top dead center. Then you can confirm your 3 timing marks the factory installed and get a idea how rough they are. Also remember the timing belt design was only made to rotate clockwise looking at front of engine. I donít mind rotating counter clockwise a few degrees but all spark plugs must be out of engine so no compression and make sure itís out of gear!
