engine compression check on '86 truck

A co-worker wants me to do a compression check on his '86 carbed 4 cylinder Nissan truck and I got a few questions. He told me it has 8 spark plugs which was a surprise to me. I've worked on Toyota and Chevy trucks but never touched a Nissan before. Do I pull all the plugs and test all 8 or only test certain ones? Anyone know the compression spec/range for that particular year engine. Thanks for any info.

That would be the NapZ engine, they just put 2 plugs/cylinder in to try and clean up emissions. Just pull one plug per cylinder for compression checking, whichever is easier to get to.
Don't know the spec on 'em.
