Still waiting for an answer.

Thanks for waiting - I will take a run at this one. The simple answer is you set up cylinders 1-3 with crank mark at tdc mark. You then rotate the crankshaft 360 degrees or 1 revolution back to the tdc mark then install and set up cylinders 4-6. This phases the camshafts correctly. This sounds like no other engine because it is like no other engine. The procedure is easy but you need the proper manual and tools to do it correctly and make it survive. Hope this helps. The actual "procedure" is too long and complex to transfer to this page but this will make it run if you know the rest of the procedure.
