the best way to be 101 percent sure is to count the teeth from mark to mark. i dont know them off hand but they are in the fsm.

edit found them lol.


on so you got 5 aligment mark right. here are tooth count between each mark.

page 15, 2-3b
lower left cam-28- upper left-54.5-crank-51-upper right-28-lower right.

i dont pin the pin till those numbers are correct, regardless if the marks line up or not, once you pin the pull, turn the engine over 5 times, then back 5 times, the marks will be damn near spot on.

i did my timing 4 times one day only to find out i was off a tooth each time, went to the fsm, found this, and nailed it the 5th time.
