Align the bearing cap mark and the center of the small hole on the camshaft timing pulley.
i got thoughs aligned , but its the two cams i'm not sure on. intake and the exhaust cams for lining up . they're not to clear on them on how they should be.
Did you install the bolt to hold the exhaust gear, before you removed the cam?
no, what bolt
Do you see how the intake cam gear is split, like 2 piece gear?
When you take it off, there needs to be a bolt, that goes all the way through the 2 gears. Its spring loaded. Since Im assuming you didn't do that, you gotta fix it, or bad things happen
Use the 10mm bolts from the timing cover.
you need to put the cam in a vise (careful where you clamp it)
There are 3 holes, we'll say 10,12,2 oclock (put it in the vise that way)
put 2 bolts in at 10 and 12 oclock, use a screwdriver to pry the gear clockwise until the 2 oclock hole goes all the way through.
Then run bolt all the way through to hold it together.
Can you handle that?
yep, ok then line up the two dots on the cam gears , the intake , and the exhaust gear
Here is the Timing set up for the cams. In case the picture stinks. you just line up the 2 sets of dots. (The dots on the drivers side of cam)
