  1. Rotate engine two full revolutions. Verify timing marks are at the follow locations:
    • primary chain idler sprocket dot is at 12 o'clock (Fig. 139)
    • primary chain crankshaft sprocket dot is at 6 o'clock (Fig. 139)
    • secondary chain camshaft sprockets "V8" marks are at 12 o'clock (Fig. 139)
