The TDC timing mark to use is the one on the flywheel, not the vibration
damper etc. puller, as far as I have heard.

There is no way for the flywheel mark to be off from the crank, the
pulley mark can be, I guess.  This may or may not matter, since you were
also verifying it with a screwdriver in #1.
