    Just curious what the process is in istalling cam gears, doing a head swap, anything that requires adjustment of timing or matching tdc with the angle of the cam. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DO THIS!!!! call me stupid, but if anyone of you can help me figure this out it would be a big help. Thanks!

    arrows on cam gears face up, tdc mark on the crank pulley lined up to the pointer on the block. there will be keys that allow you to put the cam gear on the camshaft only 1 way. just make sure you start your work with the motor at TDC and leave it there. when tensioning the timing belt make sure your slack from the belt is facing towards the rear of the car, facing front of the car you want that part of the belt to be snug. loosen, retighten tensioner.
