Distributor timing

Subject: Distributor timing

Maybe a dumb question and I may have my own solution but here goes.

I just got my dizzy rebuilt for the coupe which has electronic ignition. I went to reinstall and set the timing marks to TDC on cyl 1.
Isn't there two TDC's ? ... one for compression and another for exhaust? So I took the oil filler cap off and worked out that the TDC with the first valve down was probably the exhaust stroke and the next rotation would be the TDC I need.

But it still will not start and backfires
Any thoughts?
