You have it right, the yellow mark is TDC and it's the notch furthest to the left...it e to be set at 15 degrees before TDC, but you have to disconnect the I.A.C sensor to do it.if it's still that far out, you're probably of by a tooth.bring #1 piston to TDC, pull out distributor, turn rotor to #1 on dist cap and put in dist..adjust accordingly. .

the traditional way of setting your timing would be better, get a loan of a timing light, the sticker under your hood should tell you the spec. usually 10-12 degrees btdc at idle with the timing advance disconnected. the timing advance is a tan wire with a black stripe usually found behind a plastic relay cover on the upper passenger side of the firewall near the distributor. there will be 3 plastic nuts holding the cover. you can mark the harmonic balancer tdc with liquid paper so it is easier 2 see with the light.
