There should be punched marks on the cam sprockets which need to be lined up with factory punched marks on the rear timing belt cover, immediately behind and just above the sprocket. Line those 2 gears up and bring crank shaft damper to 0 degrees top dead center according to first mark on dampers, left side as you face the motor check to see if your distributor rotor is facing the number one terminal if not complete full rotation because motor is on exhaust stroke.

First put the #1 piston all the way up in the cyl.Make sure your crank shaft timing mark is lined up.There's another timing mark on the left side as you look at the crank shaft on the other gear(intermeteate gear).It too must be lined up. Put your cam gears timing marks together with all the valves closed on #1 cyl.
