sometimes the flywheel marks can be difficult to see.

I'd recommend removing the distributor cap so that the rotor arm is visible. Turn the engine by hand until you have the rotor arm almost pointing to #1 cylinder - now look for the mark on the flywheel. Move it tiny amounts and keep checking window in the bellhousing - an assistant helping is recommended.

If you find the mark - use some tipex to make it more visible.

Once you've got that mark, remove the front cover and check your cam marks
