Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. That definitely covers most of the info I'm looking for.
Here is were im at, I didnt disasemble any of the front cover gears except for the camshaft gear. I have the pin in the flywheel and number one at TDC. i trying to figure out how to time the camshaft with the pistons. I see the stamped marks on the gears but im just trying to verify which ***** *****nes up with which gear. Im not sure what the procedure is called on a cat, i work mostly on cummins and we call it base timing.
thanks

You are very welcome my friend. I am happy to help.

With a pin in the flywheel, the pistons are at TDC. There is a timing mark on the Cam gear. It lines up with the mark on the front cover at 12 oclock. See number 1 in this image.

the mark is on the gear cover right? it looks like a point on the very top of the outside of the cover?
that's what I thought, I just wanted to be 100% sure.
that’s correct. The notch is on the front cover. Looks like a point.
