Harmonic balancer has no timing marks how do I find “0”?

I wan to set my base timing to 10 degrees tdc with a timing light but my balancer doesn’t have any numbers, just two notches. Are one of these notches 0 degrees? I have a doorman balancer from advance auto parts.

I've never seen a balancer with only two lines, and no degree scale for Before Top Dead Center, and After Top Dead Center.
I would assume that the two lines are Top Dead Center, and 10 degrees BTDC. That set-up makes it difficult to know for sure though.

yeah, one of the notches were 0 degrees and 10 degrees btdc. i got a piece of msd timing tape and got it on there where it needs to go. it was a cheap balancer but ill be replacing very soon.
