What about them? Theres one on the crank and one on the cam. Line them up. If not sure, bring #1 to TDC (top dead center), check by removing spark plug and turn over by hand with finger over hole. When air hisses out, carefully place in long 1/4" extension and watch it go up, and when it peaks its at #1 TDC. Marks should now be aligned.

    Uh, going by the piston peak alone gives you a 50% chance of being correct. This is a 4 cycle engine

    In other words, cylinder #1 has to be peaking on the compression stroke (if the rotor is pointing at #1, then you should be good!)
