What are you looking for TDC for? Just to drop the distributor in, or for setting up a cam, or ???? When I want to find TDC on the firing stroke I simply put my finger over the #1 spark plug hole and crank the engine. When it pops my finger off I look at the timing mark and roll the engine back to zero. That's close enough to drop in a distributor, but not close enough for precise work.
