there are three lines on the bottom pulley the middle one lines up with a line on the plastic timing cover then there are two lines on the cam gear u put the lines -0- on the gear like i just showed u there are also three numbers on the gear u put the numbers on top with lines the same u have to pay attention there is two ways if u put the numers on the bottom it will run but not right. also u will need to make sure number one piston is on the compression stroke do that by pulling the plug out and turning the engine until it blows your finger off the hole then turn it back to the tree lines on the pulley are where they are as described earlier
