3 dumb questions

1:  I am trying to set the timing belt on my mc engine and there seems to be 
some disparity on what is tdc.  The bentley says to line up the cam sprocket 
mark up with the top of the valve cover gasket on the right side as you face 
it.  That takes the head to tdc but when it says to line up the mark on the 
harmonic balancer to the protrusion on the oil pump for block tdc it does not 
put a piston up.  BTW I do not have a flywheel yet.  Can I just use the #1 
piston at the top of its travel?  How do I make sure that both are accurate 
once these are set?  I know that 1 tooth can make a difference in performance 
so I want to be sure they are set accurately.

2:  This one is a really dumb one.  I was installing the exhoust manifold 
today and which way does the gasket go?  It has a metal side and the fibre 
side.  I know really dumb.

3: anybody have a 5ktq flywheel they want to unload.  I am in need of one.

Thanks in advance.
