English term or phrase: Hi everybody it's me again (TDC)
Thanks to everybody that tried so far to help me with the TDC translation. I did one more research, and now I'm sure that the meaning for the TDC in the context I'm translating is "TOP DEAD CENTER", i.e., a mechanical term which refers to the absolute top position where the number one cylinder of an engine must sit before any changes can be made to the timing system... So, if somebody already translated TDC in a similar context, I really would appreciate any help. Thanks again, magui

PONTO MORTO SUPERIOR
Explanation:
Bingo! Mechanics!
Ok, here goes:
dead-center is "ponto morto". You can also call it ponto fixo or centro morto but ponto morto is the best translation.
TOP-DEAD-CENTER is in Portuguese:
"Ponto morto superior". 100%.
so...TDC compression will be:
compressão do ponto morto superior.
Good luck!

Ponto Morto Superior (PMS)


Explanation:
É isso aí. Veja exemplo no site abaixo. Você pode usar a sigla. Se precisar de BDC, é o ponto morto inferior.
