Customer Question

have a 2004 Nissan quest that has the main timing chain off, the two valve chains are intact. I'm at TDC on # ***** They said they heard a bussing noise when they removed the main chain. I'm assuming the Front variable timing (right side facing right fender) tension has slipped. need to know how to properly set the valves to not contact the piston after replacing main chain at TDC. timing marks to go by or can you provide valve lobe placement to ensure this. Thanks
