THERE ARE SMALL HOLES IN THE TIMING GEARS THAT LINE UP WITH MARKS ON THE FRONT OF THE HEAD. When the crank pulley is at TDC on the compression stroke, 'E' & 'I' on the camshaft sprockets should be at 12 o'clock.

What is a Twin cam?

A twin cam is an engine that has two cam shafts (which open and close the valves). The most common reasons for two camshafts are: If a V-shaped engine design uses one cam shaft for each side of the V - obviously, if a V engine has overhead cams, you would need a cam at the top of each side of the V. Also, a straight in-line engine with two intake valves and two exhaust valves per cylinder might use twin camshafts. Actually, I V-6 or V-8 engine with one camshaft on each head in a overhead cam configuration is still considered a single overhead cam. The only time an engine is classified as a twin cam or double overhead cam is when there are two camshafts on each cylinder head. A double overhead cam V-6 engine would have a total of four camshafts. Two for each head.

You have 2002 Hyundai xg350 with 97000 milesshould you replace the timing belt?

Yes the timing belt should be replace at 60,000 miles. The 3.5 engine is a interference engine. If the timing belt brakes the valves will make contact with the pistons and will thrash the engine. Check your owners manuel. This is a double overhead cam engine and should be by hyundai service center. It is not a job for the novice. I am a shade tree mechanic, do all my repairs but not is one. I have changed timing belt before and would not attempt this challenge.
