Hello I will help you with your question,

TDC is determined when the #1 piston is at the top of its stroke when on the compression cycle. There is a mark on the harmonic balancer to indicate this but you have to insure it is on the compression stroke and not the exhaust stroke.

Once you have the piston in the correct position the rotor on the distributor will be aligned with the #1 spark plug wire terminal.
