take out the number one plug, it will be marked on the intake manifold,crank the engine over by hand while covering the sparkplug hole with a finger, when the air pushes out you will be on the compresion stroke. slowly crank over until the piston reaches the top, be careful here, you can stick a small screwdiver in there until it reaches the very top. you will then be at tdc top dead center
