Question about Cars & Trucks
Left cam faceing motor out of time
I there are many ways to see if you are on a compression stroke but the best and most definitive way is to remove the rocker cover and watch the vavles as they move up and down while rotating the engine by hand by hand by hand with the ignition turned off.
When you are on the compression stroke both the valves for that cylinder will be in their highest position and there should be some slack between the valve and the rocker arm.
When timing and engines this is usually done on number one cylinder top dead centre compression stroke.

Pull #1 spark plug and rotate the engine until you hear air rush out of the cylinder, (plug the hole with your finger if you can), then look at the timing mark, it will be close to TDC
