Question about 1999 Ford Expedition
The gears have a dimple in each gear at one tooth only. Align them to were you can have them set were they can be later when installing the chain. Such as 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock positions. A digital picture taken will help the exact location of each gear before you remove them as well. Pictures do tell a story

Sir if you get the Timing off even 1-tooth, Theres ways to Cheat and Get it Started.I DO NOT Recommend you doing this:
#1) Lets see if your Valve Timing is Off.BUT NOTE: you DON'T want to Start the Vehicle Before you check your Timing --YOU could Hit your Valves with your Pistons if you already have'nt MAJOR Troble and $$$!
#2) Remove your Coli Wire From your Cap and Coil. Then Remove #1 Spark Plug Put your Finger just Slightly in #1 Spark Plug Hole, Have someone Just Hit the Key on & Off Until your Feel Pressure (Compresstion) try to push your finger out.
#3) Then STOP. Remove your distributor cap and see if your Rotor is lined up to your #1 Spark Plug Wire.
#4) If it is Close to your #1 Plug Wire.Then i don't think your Timing is OFF.
#5) But it sounds like you have accidently Not lined up your cam and Crank Shaft Timing Marks.
#6) Only thing you can do if your Rotor is'nt at #1 Commpression Stroke is to Pull your Distributor out and Rotate it to where you #1 Spark Plug wire is at in your Cap?? If you have the Spark Plug Wires in the Correct order.
#7) Try This but if this does'nt solve your Problem ,You wil have to Start over and Remove your Timing Cover Sprokets and Chain and Line up your Timing
