Since it is a dual overhead cam It has 2 cam gears on the right side. In the center of those gears there is a notch cutout. Take a carpenters square and wedge it into the notches on both cams. install the belt and high five.

Had to do that job a few times because I didnt replace all the pullies on the first job. Got the job down to an hour and a half. Good Luck
