TDC to remove crankshaft pulley

Hello again. I am currently in the midst of replacing a blown head gasket on a 2003 Eclipse 4 cylinder. When locating TDC in the number 1 piston, am I finding it on the exhaust or compression stroke in order to remove the pulley? When I get it will the pulley come off easily, or will I have to give it a pretty solid tug?
