I used a poor mans TDC stop. I removed all the plugs and stuck a piece of 1/4" soft copper tubing in the #1 spark plug hole. I turned the engine until it stopped and marked the dampener. Then I rotated the engine the opposite direction until it stopped and placed another mark. TDC was half way in between. I found my engine had a late model dampener on it and the factory mark was about 20* or so off.
