Response to A few more points?

 

If you have a piston stop that goes in the spark plug hole, it's easy to check it.

Pull all the plugs out of the engine so that it's easy to turn over by hand.

Put your piston stop in the #1 plug hole.

Wrap a piece of masking tape around your harmonic balancer.

Turn the engine over slowly by hand in the normal direction until the piston hits the stop. Make a mark on the masking tape where the timing pointer points at that instant.

Turn the engine over slowly in the other direction until the piston hits the stop. Again, make a mark on the masking tape where the pointer points.

TDC should be exactly half way between those two marks that you made....which should be 0 on your balancer.
