190e engine re-build HELP!

Hi guys. I am about to re-assemble my 1985 190e 2.3L 8V. I have replaced almost everything inside the engine.. camshaft, valves, rocker arms, seals, rings, bearings, etc. You get the idea.
Now comes the problem. I have a Haynes manual.. and no where in that book does it tell me how to find Top Dead Center for cylinder one. Obviously, I know how to find this, BUT, there doesn't seem to be any info on what position the cam should be in when I am at TDC. Usually there is a blurb about lining up marks or something like that. Can anyone help? I kind of think that the valves for cyl one will be closed at TDC, which will help me in this task. I am just waiting for this info before I re-attach the head and associated parts.

Thanks very much.

There is a dot on the cam that lines up with a line casted into the front rocker box.

On the 2.3 liter engine...if it doesnt have the line,you tine up the mark on the cam with the deck of the head.
Can't remember which without looking at it.
