Question about 2001 Toyota Avalon
I am removing the intake Camshaft to test /replace the Camshaft timing gear. A service bolt is necessary for the Exhaust Gear to assure it does not move (as it is under tension). The Front intake cam went fine with service bolt on top and accessible. Rear Shaft is posing a problem since the service bolt location is on the bottom. Do I need to turn the shaft to access the bolt location and return the * to * timing markings after the bolt is installed? Is there a correct way to do this without damaging anything or am I missing something completely? Engine was placed at TDC prior to repair and *to* timing marks align on each Cam gear.
I am not sure how it can be out of time when the dots * to * line up exactly on both the front and rear cam. I just dont understand how one is supposed to get the service bolt in the rear cam since it is on the bottom of the exhaust gear.

the 2 single dots on the inside of the gear(side facing the rear of the motor) When the gears mesh together the 2 dots should line up.

simple to figure that out . the key ways are always up on camshafts. it allows for them not to fall out when assembling the engine . so use the balancer to determine tdc (top dead center on cyl one) and make sure both keys are straight up . (just loosen the cam retainer nuts and look to see what set of marks they line up with and dont forget t re-torque them to factory specs somewhere between 22 and 28 ft lbs but not a lot more) , google the specs up to be sure
