If the flywheel is from a Digifant II (I don't know the timing values
for CIS-e) one of the marks (left hand when looking from the flywheel
end of the engine, I believe) is 6° BTDC the other about 1/2" from it
should be TDC.  There might be another stamping, like an "O", on the
flywheel to denote TDC.
