Question about Isuzu VehiCROSS
On the sprokets, there are little marks, they match up together. This allows valves on both heads to open in syn. Like both open on intake stroke, and so on.

The reason for this is the cam grind and valve springs and the way the cam timing is set up, just off center of lobe peak, there is a special tool to hold the cam pulley's once they are positioned right, it goes between them and lock them together to prevent rotating, suggest you improvise or buy a universal cam pulley holding tool, I have never seen one but know tool dealers sell them like Snap-On and MAC tool and others like KD tools...

For the crank shaft, there is a mark on the oil pump gear which should be straight up, same as the key way if you want to go by that. On the cam the pulley has a mark that should be pointing straight up toward the "V"
in the cover behind the pulley.
put both sprockets on then turn them so that the dot on the crank sprocket is straight up and the dot on the cam sprocket is straight down. Remove the cam sprocket, put the chain around it and slip the chain around the crank sprocket while placing the cam sprocket back into position, being careful to maintain the orientation. see both dots are straight up. You would know right away when you adjust the valves because you would be assuming #1 was up for compression, and one of the rockers would be down to push the exhaust valve open. Rotate the crankshaft one revolution and readjust the valves.
