Default Two timing marks 01+ engine

Maybe all of the 1.8s but I know my 04 engine has two marks on the pulley 10 degrees apart. Which one do I use to line up with to set my base timing?

So in Megasquirt when you set the fixed timing does this photo represent
-10 degrees or TDC?


(wondering why 2 lines are needed on the crank pulley when 1 line will do it?)

When setting the fixed timing angle in MS (10* BTDC) this is what you should see.

On my car the two timing lines have two different paint marks, white and yellow. No idea why they decided to put two marks on the pulley.
