This is the least offset I can get with the 2084 in the position.

Default (edited) The cam shaft mark should be level with the top of the cover gasket...

You should look through the window in the bell housing for the crank mark not that mark on the front of the engine. It can and should be perfectly lined up. Use the 2084 only to tighten it, it dosn't need to be on other then that. I guess I have not used the true 2084, maybe it does line the crank mark up when it is attached??

How to know it is on the #1 tdc other than line up the marks?

Default I never use that mark....

I only use the dimple on the rear of the camgear and line it up with the top of the valve cover. For the crank I look at the bellhousing area and find the proper timing mark. If and when they line up, voila!
