Problem with going off of any objective marks on the dizzy wheel is that someone may have changed where the spark plug wires go (it's very easy to do) so lining everything up by checking where cylinder #1 is and if the rotor is about to fire that wire off is highly recommended.

When you do the job again in the future, mark the location of the dizzy on the bolt holding the Alternator in place on the top and use some nail polish or touch up paint. That saves a lot of headache getting everything re-timed.

I always like to check and line everything up myself, that way I know exactly where everything is and where everything needs to be at the correct time. Then no guess work necessary.
