Question about BMW Cars & Trucks
Both facing upward, with the flat parallel to the engine deck. Then the #1 cylinder lobes should both be facing upward (relative to the engine deck- remember the engine sits tilted at an angle in the engine bay), and slightly pointing inward toward each other.

j__quin: 4-AC engine I believe we are both referring to.
Your cam gear can only fit one way and if you look at the cam gear, you will notice that there is a small hole in the gear close to the center, somewhat in between two of the large holes.
Position that small hole at the 12:00 PM and look through the hole.
You should be able to see a timing mark through the hole on the head. The mark should be dead center.
At the bottom, the crank woodruff key will be at 12:00 PM.
Also on the back side of the timing gear on the crank closest to the block, is a notch "V" which you line up with a dot on the block.
You should see the two line up with the key in the 12:00 PM position.
Put the belt on, when you set the tension, a good way to check it, is to find the longest span between the tensioner and the gear.
Take your fore finger and thumb and try to twist the belt. It shouldn't twist more than 45 degrees.

Bank two is towards the Radiator. You should check with a nissan dealership. call them up and give them your Vin # and have them run it for any recalls. There is a old recall that Nissan will replace both cam sensors for free if your car falls under the Vin range.

The cam and crank position sensor can be found in the front of the crank on the
engine block below or next to the water pump in many applications.
It can also be located on the main crank pully or the flywheel.
