Thanks for asking your question. I will try and help you out.

It's best to pin the flywheel to get tdc. When it's pinned. Compression is determined by which valves are closed. If the valves on one are closed and rockers loose. One is on compression. If the valves on six are closed and rockers loose. Side is on compression.

Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
