Yea thats what the service manual pictures are lacking.nightrider46 said:np. glad u got it running. I actually edit that picture so ppl can see the yellow markings and stuff. I dont use the service manual, it sucks ***.
i pray youre still active, PLEASE HELPOk I got her running again.
What I did was: with the cam sprockets removed, and spark plugs out, I spun the engine over by hand at the crank pulley, until the 2 yellow paint marks lined up with the corresponding bolt head/hole in the picture here:
Pic provided by nightrider, Thanks!
The service manual pic doesn't show the paint marks on the chain.

I can slip the cam gears back on, and check that the #1 lobes are equally pointed outwards.
