Your numbers are relatively tight and probably ok.

You can bump the engine over with the starter and then remove the distributor cap and see if the rotor is pointing to that cylinder. You can also stick a long screw driver down the spark plug hole and see if the piston is near TDC. If you could crank it by hand it would be better. Just get a 27mm (?) socket on the crank nut and rotate clockwise and watch the screw driver rise and stop (TDC) before dropping. Should be close enough. Just don't force anything.
