The #1 piston is up @ TDC the cam is @ it's mark. The cam gear has a hole which is aligned with a mark on the cam bearing cap you look thru the hole in the cam gear to align the hole with the mark. When both those are in place both valves are closed on the #1 cylinder which is the one closes to the timing belt. The distributor has alignment marks you align before stabbing back into the head and when those marks are aligned the rotor points to aprox 7 pm postion which is #1 on the cap. I have checked & triple checked the plug wire position, timing belt alignment, distributor position, and everything else over and over again.
