They don't actually need to "find" TDC. They use a timing wheel to tell them where the crank is on its cycle. Then they put the cam blocks on and set the location of the cam's that way. Then, reading the timing wheel, they find TDC on the vertical cylinder and do the same process.

When you have the right tools, the belt change is very quick.

How do you know if the crank is on its cycle without having to turn it? I thought the plugs were supposed to be removed.
They put a timing wheel on the left side of the engine.

Plugs are irrelevant, timing wheel tells all. ;)

Though I don't know how they did it without removing the tank either.
