Anyways, pull the number one plug out. Take a screwdriver with a long handle and measure how deep the piston is and mark the screw driver with elect tape or what ever. bump the starter, recheck and remark if it came up higher. Continue this until the piston drops. you should have a good idea of where the highest point is by the lowest point on the screwdriver. To fine tune it, you can manually spin the motor over with a socket and a breaker bar on the crank.
Once you have it there, check your rotor position.
The closest point to the tip of the screwdriver, yeilds the highest point of the piston.
