Ed,

I'm almost finished with the restoration, and am hooking things up.  The previous owner pulled the Marelli distributor without marking the position of the rotor for TDC on the #1 cylinder.  Does the Marelli have a notch or other marking on the distributor to which the rotor should point at TDC for the #1 cylinder?  Seems to me that it doesn't matter where the rotor is pointed as long as the spark plug wires are in their proper order.  Is this wrong?

Thanks again, Ed
