j__quin: 4-AC engine I believe we are both referring to.
Your cam gear can only fit one way and if you look at the cam gear, you will notice that there is a small hole in the gear close to the center, somewhat in between two of the large holes.
Position that small hole at the 12:00 PM and look through the hole.
You should be able to see a timing mark through the hole on the head. The mark should be dead center.
At the bottom, the crank woodruff key will be at 12:00 PM.
Also on the back side of the timing gear on the crank closest to the block, is a notch "V" which you line up with a dot on the block.
You should see the two line up with the key in the 12:00 PM position.
Put the belt on, when you set the tension, a good way to check it, is to find the longest span between the tensioner and the gear.
Take your fore finger and thumb and try to twist the belt. It shouldn't twist more than 45 degrees.
