Question spark plugs and wires

im reaplcing all my spark plugs and compression testing all my cylinders

right now my compression is, on average, 60 PSI and its supposed to be at 160.

does anybody know how to reach the spark plug in the very top of the engine? ive got the extensions for my ratchet and the tester is just long enough. but i want to actually see where im going first. im a V6 3.3 liter engine so my intake manifold is on top of the spark plug and even with a stool i cant get the right angle from the top or see it from the front. is there something to move so that i can see it?
