Line up the top of the pin on the face of the crank gear at 12 o'clock so it lines up to the notch just above it on the block. The intake cam gear on the left (looking from the front of the car) needs to have the "I" stamped in the gear lined up at 12 o'clock position with the notch on the metal cover above it and the exhaust cam gear on the right side is done the same but line up the "E" stamped in the gear at 12 o'clock with the notch above it. Make sure they stay in position when the belt is installed. My cam gear stamped letters and the notches above them did not line up perfectly to each other. I wouldn't worry if they are a few millimeters off.
