There are no marks for the chain to set up.
a special tool is to align the camshaft and crankshaft, add to it an OHM Meter .
good luck

No timing marks: you need to use the series of special tools to lock the camshafts and crankshaft into place, then set the vanos. and if it is a M62tu eng you will need a volt/ohm meter to set vanos also.

the tools needed are cam blocks, they hold the cam in place at the rear of the cam and attach to the head. the crank tool is a rod that goes into the flywheel, by way of a hole in the bellhousing to hold the crankshaft. Then there's also the timing chain tensioning tool, and the cam sensor alignment tools (2). Total tool cost about $650-800 for the set. I checked the tool set made by Baum Tools Factory wouldn't have made the tools were it possible to do it by eye. Do you have the tool to tension the timing chain while setting the VAROS with your multimeter? Really, this job should not be attempted unless you're prepared to completely follow the directions, if you try, you'll likely trash the motor.

Timing marks on 1989 bmw 528i need to no where timing marks should be when putting on the new belt

the information i have is that your engine has a timlng chain not a belt. the timing for the chain is by the crankshaft is locked by a tool through the engine block at the rear and in to the flywheel the cams are locked by a clamp/special tool at front of engine under cam cover. hope that helps

How to setup the timing chain for BMW

The sadder thing is you have a 740. align both cam pulley per the book or where you marked them before you took the chain off. They're marked in relation to top dead center of the #1 cylinder and crankshaft.

Didn't do that beforehand.......uh oh. Tow it to dealer, bring one wheelbarrow full of fresh cash. Drive away in about 6 hours.

To set the timing you should turn the No.1 piston to TDC, then turn the cam to where both valves on No.1 are close. The timing mark on the sproket should now be in line with the mark on the cilinder head. With No. 1 still on TDC fit the chain.
After fitting turn the engin a few times by hand to make sure there's not a valve pushing against a piston.
