Crank should be at TDC (put your finger over the plug hole and make sure there's compression when the crank is rotated to this position - otherwise it's on the wrong cycle). Cam sprocket mark should be slightly above horizontal on the passenger side (around 3mm or so).

Dizzy rotor should be on the 'finish' mark, and the TFI plug should face around 60 degrees toward the rear.
