    Blak explained it well but it also helps to see someone do it if you're looking for more confidence. I'll see what I can find but the link is no good now

    This explains it with photos. If you don't see marks on your timing chain just line it up like blak posted above, mark the ends and line them up to the marks on the gears

    How would I rotate the cam to do all of them? And would it be front ones then the back ?

    Youll need an 18mm socket to rotate the crank. When the cam lobe is at closed, take the screwdriver and pop it off.

    That's how I did it. Bleeding down the adjusters makes installation easier. But bleeding down 32 adjusters takes a long time.

    Gotta use a heat gun and big pliers. Them lashers are nothing when the oil is hot.
