[Vwdiesel] TDI timing marks

I finally have the TDI re-assembled, but I can't get it to start this time.  Maybe it's as afraid to start as I am to start it, considering what happened last time.  With the very limited number of things that can cause a Diesel to not start, I'm thinking that it's not timed right.  I do have fuel to the injectors.  I had put the pin in the injection pump, lined up the camshaft and the crank, but I have some vague concern I might not have it at the right mark on the flywheel.  It turns over well without hitting anything, but the mark I found doesn't look like that one in Bentley.  (it's a 5 speed 2000 ALH TDI)  Bentley shows a mark like "0-"  All I found was "-".  It's a little hard to find marks when you're doing it by yourself, and I want to make sure I was setting everything by the right one.
