Thank you for the fast reply. Is one rotation of the engine when the fly wheel comes back around to line up with the timing mark. Is that one full rotation. Hope this is not to dumb of a question.

One full revolution after setting the first 4 valves. No4 piston should be at TDC on the compression stroke. Use a long plastic straw once you feel compression on No1 piston and watch the straw rise as a helper slowly cranks over the engine. Hal

To clarify so that you know what you are doing 1,2,3,5 are done with TDC on #1 -- 4,6,7,8 are done with TDC on #4. I make sure I am feeling air with my finger when cranking and then line up the marks. That is a foolproof way to do it.
