You’re almost there! As you found, the tekufah is 6d 17h 26ch after the molad of Nissan. Since that was, also as you’ve found, on Thursday at 12h 1054ch, then adding them together brings you to the next Thursday at 6h = midnight. Which matches what the Rambam tells us in halachah 5. The date is 8 Nissan.

Thanks

This what I was grappling with
Is 6 17 26 + 12 1054 = 7 days 6 hours considered 8th day
As the Rambam quotes n Hal 10
Please confirm
