You need a cam timing tool to put at end of cams to align them and you need TDC @ #1 this motor has variable exhaust cam timing fed by oil press. the tool is just a flat piece of metal that fits in the groves in the back of the cam's their is a very technical procedure involved in this one I would recommend buying a good manual and reading up before attempting this if gone bad could be disaster

The keyway and or the dot on the crank should be line at 12 oclock. You will see a point on the oil pump housing to go by. On the camshaft the pointer will be at 12 oclock also. Use the O on the camshaft to the top at mark. Be sure to look at the dist. roter to make sure that it is pointing at the #1 spark plug wire. I could get 180 out of time. If you do it right it should start up right away. then you can use a timing light to finish it.
Good Luck email@example.com
