Hello, at the rear of the camshafts are slots that you install a camshaft alignment tool( a flat bar) that only goes in one way to lock the cams in proper timing alignment so the valve cover is removed to rest the bar betwen the cams and the top of the cylinder head. The crank key way is at the 12 o clock position and can be locked by installing a locator pin through the block on the firewall side by removing a bolt from the engine block and it hits against the crank counterweight
