early Honda B series trigger offset

Hi Team

I've just wired in a monsoonX into a friends EF9 Civic. I've run into an issue with setting up the triggers. It runs a 16 tooth wheel in the dizzy I have run for trigger 1 and a single tooth wheel for trig2/sync. i cant for the life of me find where to set the trigger offset to? ive tried mostly 10 degree increments between -360 to 360 degree. Am i on the right track here? or am i missing something? would also be super helpful if someone had a ballpark figure i can enter to get it running and edit it from there. I am tempted to try the 24 tooth dizzy from my own similar car but that doesnt solve the issue with this dizzy.

Any help appreciated!

If you wind the engine over by hand to TDC#1 and give us a photo of where the single tooth is pointing inside the distributor will will be able to have a rough guess.  I have never seen a 16T one.  

What is the engine code?
