Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to try and assist your with your question. Below is a diagram of the marks. There are different color links that get lined up with the marks on the gears.

this is the same picture that I was able to obtain, and I know that the chain did not "move" or jump from the cams, but for sure it moved on the crank at least one tooth. Do you think that I have to remove the chains to set it up with the painted marks? That is why I am looking for other marks on the block or heads to set the cam sprockets and the crank in time.


There are no marks on the heads for the cams and will need to remove and set it up with the painted marks to make sure it is in time.
