The top cam gear should have an arrow cut into the inside of the gear this points straight up at 12 o clock and the crank pulley has two groves cut into the inside lip one large and one small the smaller on is 0 degrees and is to the left side of the bigger one, that is to be lined up with the timing tab above it where that too has a notch cut in at 0 degrees again at almost 12 o clock. very simple.
