Question about crankshaft location when Doing head studs

My ford book says rotate the crankshaft Untill the damper location dowel notch is in the six o'clock position or engine damage can occur .... So my dumb question is since they don't word it better is does this mean pin on the crank at 6o'clock or the notch cut out for the lpop and damper because they are 180 degrees apart lol and just don't want to get it backwards because the book says notch not pin

it means the pin for the damper. some people say it works, some say it dosnt. The biggest thing is to verify that all the push rods are seated in the lifters properly.

another thing i do is leave the glow plugs out and have a helper turn the motor over by hand while you look at the valve train. After I broke a rocker arm and bent a push rod on my motor, i do that on all the other stud jobs ive done.

Ok I still haven't put my new injectors in yet so I will go ahead and take the glow plugs back out and roll it over by hand
