When writing up the procedure above, it got too long. I meant to edit out the part where I found TDC for the wrong cylinder. After installing the timing jig, I discovered the distributor bench timing is actually done with the rotor pointing at the No.3 terminal. Grrr. Go back out, reinstall distributor and find TDC on No.3.

Another edit I thought got too long-winded was my piston probe made from a bent piece of wire so I could put a mark and match up the same piston movement going both ways with the crank. It was an offset measurement, but seemed reasonably accurate at the time.

After all that, as TOH correctly points out below, my calculation slipped a decimal point somewhere, so rather than 2 degrees apart, my pulley marks were more like 20 degrees apart! That certainly lowers the accuracy to the point nothing was actually proved by this effort. Good thing I enjoy fiddling with these tractors, so this complete waste of time was at least somewhat fun.
