1989 944 S2 Finding TDC to replace timing belt

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944 S2; Year: 1989; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 67000;

I'm having a difficult time locating TDC to remove the timing belt. Specifically, there doesn't appear to be an "OT" mark on the flywheel per the manual -- or at least I can't get it to appear after rotating the cam gear through eight complete rotations.Online sources mention a mark that's visible through a window under the car, but I have no joy there either; A yellow paint dot and a scratch are visible through two different windows at each TDC mark alignment on the cam.What am I missing?
