For some people, they only know that there is a notch on the pulley. Normally this is not tdc and they also don't realize just because it says tdc that it doesn't mean its on number one cylinder.

Yeah- there are a bunch of different pulleys out there- if you don't know what the notches are, you're going to be in trouble
