I concur with IC. When the engine is set up at TDC, the distributor rotor is pointing pretty close to the 3 O'Clock position when looking from vehicle front to back. The #1 wire is close to the 12 O'Clock position on the cap.

EDIT: I found this picture (borrowed):

The line marked in black pen is where your dustributor rotor tip should be pointing with all the timing marks lined up (TDC).

Go to this link for more info on setting up the timing:
