How do I compression test a 280 SEL 4,5 1972? Hot or cold etc

Does someone have an resource about this? I only found this article, but it was on a 116, but maybe the same procedure on a W108 4,5 V8 car?

Thanks!

Engine at operating temp, throttle wide open. Insure the FI and ignition is disabled.

Is it enough to pull out the small contacts to the nozzles (8) and pull of wire to the coil from the distributor?
