Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.I will do my best to assist you.
if the lower chain hasnt been off,,it is right,,though it may not align back up with the other marks because the chain is so long,,it may need to turn many times before it will all align
yes,,if it has never been off and is still in time
the best thing to do is to start from scratch if you arent sure
i will give you instructions,,do it as it says and it will be right and cant be wrong..stand by

if the bottom has never been off,,it should be right and all you bneed to do is to time the top
but,,if you are worried about the bottom also..take it apart and remove the chain and start from the beginning
it doesnt matter,,you dont need to wrry about where the piston ins,,when you align it as i gave you,,it will be right and cant be wrong
it must have a mark to align with the chain..are you sure you arent looking at them on the wrong side?
a circle/dot would be your mark
