KTM11 is on a distinguished road

I accidentally threw the engine completely out of time while disassembling. Couple questions to make sure i put it back correctly.
If my crank is at top dead center (according to the harmonic balancer on the timing cover) and my camshaft marker is straight down am I in time??? Also the distributor is facing 180* away from the cylinder 1 firing.. I believe cylinder one is on the compression stroke at TDC and that makes me believe I set the timing correctly.
Also do I just torque down the rocker arms to 21 ft lbs to set them? I know other engines (smallblock chevys for sure) you have to get out the feeler gauges and adjust each valve
