Hi, welcome to Just answer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX i will help with your question

The timing chain is aligned using two notches on each of the sprockets, they simply point to each other, its best described using a diagram so I will add the diagram, this also shows the torque settings you need. .

Customer:

Thanks this is very helpful. However, I also needed the torque wrench settings for the car , e.g head bolts, big ends, and the like. The problem is that I have no manual for the car.

That's no problem, I don't have the manuals in front of me right now but I will make sure you have all the torque settings you need before the end of the day.
