Timing question

My 3.9 RRC isn't running. I did a ghetto timing check by sticking a screwdriver into sparkplug hole #1 and hand cranked it to tdc. I took off the rotor cap and the rotor was between lead #1 and #8. Is this right? This would mean spark hits as cylinder #1 is coming to tdc.

I read the rotor should be 5 degrees advanced at tdc. So this in-between lead #1 & #8 should make sence right?

Never mind. I checked it on the defender and the timing is the same. Got the RRC started! Man it feels good to fix something that has been sitting for so long.
