what motor? My z6 is at tdc when the middle white mark on the crank pulley lines up with the pointer on the timing belt cover. You can pull the #1 plug out too and put something in there to see when the piston is all the way up.

it does not have to be at TDC, the rotor can only go on in 1 position.. change 1 wire at a time so that you dont mix up the firing order

yeah, the rotor should have a flat spot that matches the flat spot on the dizzy. It is like this so that you cant put it on wrong.
