For DOO DOO and giggles, I used a piece of insulated no 12 copper wire
striped short on each end. I inserted one end through the spark plug
hole with a slight hook down on the inner end. Connected the other end to the ohm meter. I rotated the crank very slowly until I got continuity.
Naturally on the compression stroke. I stopped and put a chalk mark on the pulley and engine block. Then
continued to turn the crank slowly until I lost continuity. Again I chalk marked the pulley. I did this several times to be sure nothing shifted.
Midway between the two marks was TDC. That I believe is a fairly
accurate for this purpose.
