SOURCE: timing ----
the easiest way I found is to take out #1 plug jam a rag in the plug hole with a sccrewdriver tight and tap the starter around until the rag pops out then move the engine the rest of the way by hand I looked for whatever information I have on that and I have no pictures to send you sorry if you have found this information helpful please give me a good rating Thank you ,Randy

Yes be sure the number one piston is at TDC firing stroke or compresson stroke and line up the timing mark pointer is pointed at exactly zero. One more thing when aligning the camshaft sprocket or sprockets be sure that when you are rotating the sprocket for the cam it is rotating in the correct direction and also be sure you observe the intake valve for number one shutting as you bring the marks up to alignment points, the intake valve and the exhaust valve should be shut when the marks line up if not you could have the cam sprocket off 180 degrees, get it right the first time or you may damage a valve trying to start.
