pull the #1 plug and put a long socket extension in the hole. Rotate the crank by hand and you will see it move out of the hole. That will tell you when in the neighborhood of TDC, then you should be able to see the marks. If you really want to get fancy, you use a dial indicator and you can check the accuracy of the timing mark, but if you are ready for that you know all that already :)

Oh, is this a V6 or V8? if so, you'll have too google it. If the cam marks line up, it should have the #1 at TDC already, as the cam marks only align at #1 TDC
