there is a few ways of doing thes the easiest way being using locking pins
you bont have to go and buy a set of locking pins you can use 3 m8 (13mm headded) bolts and a 5mm allen key
there is a hole in the cam pully and 2 holes in the injection pump pully and 1 in the fly wheel
i suggest you lock the fly wheel up first
the hole is located under the starter motor on the front of the block
insert the 5mm allen key and get someone to turn the crank pully clockwise until allen key engages into the fly wheel
the hole in the cam should be at about 25 past
(if it is at 10 to then you neet to remove the pin from the fly wheel and turn the crank 1 full turn)
when the hole is inthe right place you can insert a m8 bolt and wind it in to the head
with this now lined up you should be able to fit the other 2 m8 bolts into the injector pump pully
with this now done your 1.9 tdi engine is timed up
Yes, you are right, you can't. What one must do is to position the toes of the cam to pointing straight up, when # 1 piston is at TDB, also at that point double check distributor cap to be sure you are at #1. All this will assure you that you are at compression stroke, meaning both valves are closed. This is why some manufactures marked the cam. Some manufactures did not.
