timing mark is on flywheel for crank and on the rear end of the cams under the rocker cover.be carefull with this as the pulleys do not have keyways and can come loose resulting in smashed valves and piston.make sure retaining bols have locktite or better still araldite on the threads and use a impact gun on them.fairly easy job to do though,make sure you remove tensioner though and remove the dust cover and give a little drop of oil and some new grease then push seal cover back on ,saves the cost of a new bearing as these are not cheap.

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

SOURCE: how do i time a
Some times the cam pulleys may not have a dot marking the cam, they may have an x marking the
cam. if unsure you can alsways do it the old way by making sure the number one cylinder is raised
all the way to the top. I usually pull the number one sparkplug, make sure the cars wheels are blocked
put it in neutral and turn the crankshaft damper untill it reaches the highest point. i will use some thin
fuel line or clear line inserted into the number one sparkplug hole so that i can mark the highest point
on the piston, this will be top dead center. good luck!
