I put the car in 5th and roll until the TDC mark
appears in the flywheel observation port. A second
person would make this easy.

I had success with drilling the rivet off. I started
with a dremel and found going very slow, so I went
for the drill.
I used something like a 3/8" bit that had a pilot
point on it which allowed me to bite into the rivet.
An old towel would help catch the flying metal bits.
I think I removed the cruse control actuator and the
pentosin bottle for better access.

It may be easier to remove the intake manifold,
but I didn't try it.
