Thanks for the reply. I am working on trying to find a good picture. I will try and post a couple. Here is how you set cam gear. You pin flywheel. Then install cam gear with timing mark at top. Line it up with mark on your front cover housing. Sometimes it looks like it is inbetween two gears. If it is like that you usually can try and take gear lash out to get it more centered. I will post some more pics. If you have anymore questions, just ask. Thanks
Note: Camshaft timing is critical. The timing mark on the camshaft gear must be aligned with the timing mark on the front cover when the No. 1 piston is at the top center of the compression stroke. Refer to Testing and Adjusting, "Gear Group (Front) - Time".
Note: If the timing marks are not aligned, remove camshaft gear (1) and rotate the camshaft until the timing marks are aligned.
Note: Skip Step 8 if shaft assembly (19) has been removed, loosened, or moved in any way. The backlash for the camshaft gear and the adjustable idler gear will need to be readjusted. The camshaft gear must be installed and the adjustable idler gear must be removed in order to perform the backlash adjustment procedure. Refer to Testing and Adjusting, "Gear Group (Front) - Time".
