Default help me... How do I find the zero degree timing on an unmarked motor can?

A friend of mine gave me this motor, which I believe is a 14T single because that's what was engraved on the can.

picture here:

I stupidly took it apart for a clean, only to realise that there are no markings on the edge of the can or label and now I have no idea where the zero degree timing position on the motor is!

How do I find it?

I intend to use this motor for fun and motoring around so would just like to have it run for as long as it will go on one charge rather than advancing timing for power.

Can anybody help me?

0 degrees will be exactly in between the 2 magnets. Id also be very surprised if it wasn't marked, in fact i think i can see the mark on the photo!

the 'mark' is actually just a bubble on the label that appears to be coincidentally on that spot, so i'm not too confident on it being the true zero point.
