Find peak lift of on #1 intake lobe and zero the mic. The lobe will be a peak lift for several degrees of rotation before is starts closing so you need to find the center of the peak lift zone. Back the motor up a bit and rotate it forward to .050" before peak lift and .050" after peak lift. Add those numbers and divide by 2 for your ICL. Make sure all of the numbers are recorded with the motor rotating forward so all slack is out of the timing set just as it will be when it is running. Use a piston stop to find TDC the same way you find the ICL. Rotate the motor until the #1 piston hits the stop and record. Reverse the rotation until it hits the stop and the point between these stop points is TDC. Once you're done you can rotate the motor and read the mic to see if the intake valve opening point at .050" agrees with your cam card for a double check.
