Flywheel timing marks

I took my flywheel off and did not note the position of the timing marks. I have my number one cylinder at T.D.C. and am now wondering where to position the flywheel. Any help appreciated.

Thanks, Brian.

Brian,
With the front piston at TDC position the flywheel with the timing marks on top. The timing pointer is actually the casting split that runs vertically at the center of the cylinder on the rear of the block.
Now, to be the firing TDC position, both valves must be closed.

Thanks Don, with that info the engine is now back into the frame. Here is a pic of where I'm at.
