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

The book is wrong on each cam gear there are two sets of marks "notches align them facing each other in the center of head nevermind "I" and "E" if correct you'll have both of them making one line in the center of both pulleys and the other set of notches will be 45 degrees below. I found this out the hard way just finished with mine for info and tips on mechanics and parts for your ride visit my site at www.godspeedmotorsportsonline.com

With the #1 Piston at TDC there is a mark that you can see through the access hole on the transmission. The cam lobes should both be pointing up on #1 Cylinder. The slot on the right or back side of the cam should be level with the top of the valve cover gasket mating surface on the head. There is a tool to make sure that this is in place, but it is not necessary. There is also a mark for the injection pump that should be lined up with the gasket mating surface. There is also a tool that fits this (I use an 11mm craftsman 1/4 inch drive socket in the holes)
I bought one of my VW pickups cheap because a repair shop didn't line it up correctly and the engine would not run properly.
The directions should be pretty good in the haynes manual.
