it should put it at top dead center. but you have to make sre that you are on the comprection stroke

Thanks guys. I have the head off cause it snapped the cambelt due to a faullty tensioner and after I had a look at the pistons individually I turned it back on the mark on the block side of the crank pulley. That's when I noticed the pistons at equal height
