How can I get TDC without timing marks?

1) Remove the spark plug and place a long screwdriver or piece of dowel rod through the spark plug hole so that it is resting on the face of the piston. As you rotate the engine (by hand), this will move up and down with the piston. When you see it has reached its highest point of travel, it is at TDC.

How do you tell if your timing is 180 out?

You can determine if it is 180 out by removing #1 plug and placing your finger/thumb over the hole. (Temporarily remove the wire from the coil first) Have someone “tap” the starter and you will feel pressure trying to to blow your finger away. This is the compression stroke. Note the direction of engine rotation.

How do you know if cylinder 1 is TDC?

You want the top of the compression stroke, so if you can put your finger (or thumb) on the spark plug hole of cylinder #1, you can run your piston up to top dead center. If you feel the air being pushed out, you are on the top of the compression stroke.
