i did as you suggested. (took a breather.) lol. then i pulled the number 1 plug. i plugged the hole with my finger and turned the crank until no more air could be heard hissing out between my finger and the block. the timing mark was actually at 10 degrees btdc. (should air be coming out all the way to 0 degrees tdc?) then i pulled the dist. cap and the rotor is pretty close to the number 1.
