TDC guarantee ?

Need to take the head off the junior tomorrow as there's no compression on 4.

There's no marking on my front pulley. There's a triangle marker behind the pulley, that no way lines up with the top, so lining anything up would be very hard.

My cam lobes are both facing out on piston 1. The cam markers are both lined up. The piston is at the top of its stroke (screwdriver in hole test). The dizzy arm is at piston 1.

Safe to remove head?????

Just cautious without true TDC mark on pulley.

Should be good. I would make a mark on the pulley that lines up with the pointer.

P is TDC, the pointer should be on the waterpump, but they do get left off. You can get close to TDC with a vertical pointer in the #1 cylinder, turn til it rises, stops, starts to file. There's a short arc of almost no movement.
