TDC issue.

While replacing my well built head in my 2000 4.0 jeep wrangler i believe i messed up a bit. I removed my pushrods, rockerarms Then as soon as i removed my head i realized i missed a important step. That being finding TDC. . If i turn the flywheel a bit the first piston (front of jeep) is on its way up. If anyone could give me any help that would be great. Thanks

Is the timing chain still assembled? If so, it doesn't matter.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

You're good.

No aspects of timing are accomplished in the head. As long as the crankcase is intact, the timing is not altered.
