How do you align the timing gears on the camshaft and crankshaft on a 97 geo tracker 1.6l 16 valve engine?

The cam sprocket has an "E" adjacent to the timing mark which lines up at 12 o'clock with the V mark on the camshaft seal cover. There is a notch mark on the lower timing belt sprocket that aligns with the mark on the engine front cover at 12 o'clock. These must be set on the proper stroke of the engine as well. Recommend the purchase of a Haynes Repair Manual for your Tracker (1986-2001). It's a fairly complicated 27 step procedure and must be done exactly right. I'm doing that very task on my 97' Tracker right now (it's cold!). Much good advice to keep you from ruining the engine. You can get the manual at your local car parts store - not too expensive <$20, well worth it. Good Luck
