If you haven't done this before be very careful not to break the cam position sensor.
I learnt the hard way how easy it is to break these when setting the cam position. bugger, bugger, bugger!
After admitting it on here there were quite a few other members who were sympathetic because they had done the same thing.
The other lesson I leant is to lubricate the water pump "O" ring with silicone grease. If it is dry it is easy to trap and damage it when pushing the housing into the engine block. Another lesson learnt the hard way!!
Also the 1.6 does have a crank TDC mark. On my son's car I used the DTI to discover that the crank position mark was spot on.
