Reply to Lurch's Post: Does the timing tools tell you what the marking should be?
Expert:  Lurch replied 9 years ago.
The tools will index the Cam & Crankshaft to the position they need to be, but knowledge of how the components need to be lined up is very important.
If you have never done this type install before, you need to have someone familar with the Timing Belt help you complete the installation, or damage can occur.
This is not a easy job.
Most Auto Parts Stores should have the tools needed also
