I tell my students to take all of the plugs out so it is easier to count the compression pulses. With all of the plugs still in, the engine cranks over but you must watch the gauge like a hawk to count the number of compression strokes each cylinder does. With all the plugs out every time the engine comes to the compression stroke of that cylinder the starter loads-up and you can coult the pulses without even looking.
