Hello Michael,

The above reference material should show you how to install your belt. The cam alignment requires a special tool which is inserted in the end of the cams, it will only fit one way when aligned properly. If you don't have this tool you can use a flat file as long as it fits tight in the notches. If I can assist let me know.
