Thanks for asking your question. I can help you with this.

Here is the procedure for setting timing the Cam and setting the back lash procedure. Basically you will pin the flywheel and put the engine on TDC. Then set the Cam gear timing mark at 12 oclock.

I accepted the phone call offer and it told me it was decline because of lack of payment. I proposed a phone call offer again and it was not accepted. I am happy to help if you still need more help. I will send another phone offer.
