timing chain setup

Hey all, got a question for those who have built a motor before... im not white sure how to set up the timing for the cam belt on my f4i... the manual I have says to line up the TI sign on the pulse generator rotor with etchings on the cover case... I have posted pix on the cover... im not sure which etchingto use... one is like an arrow thing which makes logical sense but its inside the cover... the othdr one looks more like the one from the book but seems stupid to me, it is just a mark on the threading of the hole in the clutch cover itself.... helpbwould b appreciated... this while setupbseems very crude to me.. there should be a tooth lining up with an arrow, not these stupid letters...


Can't seem to get pix up from droid.. will post even I get home

You should be able to ignore the timing mark on the crank and just set #1 piston at TDC using a probe down the spark plug hole.
Then set the cams so the timing marks align with the surface of the head but with the cam lobes not about to open either the intake or exhaust valves right away. The intakes would have closed around 90 degrees earlier and the exhausts won't open for another 90 degrees.

Re: timing chain setup

Since when is markings like that stupid?? Run a straight edge from the bottom of the letter across to the bottom.. I would assume that right there would be lined up.

Using the tooth on the gear would be pretty much the exact same thing.
