this is the left cam
this is the right cam
this is the crank.
on your tensioner you will have to remove the spring tensioner 2 bolts and put it in a vise thigten it down until you pin hole on it lines up with the pin hole on the tensioner and put a small drill bit etc in the whole to hold it compressed and reinstall it then put your belt on. hope this helps
