I'm trying to put my timing chain back on the gear and onto the camshaft but I believe we accidentally moved the bottom gear and now the timing could be off...How can i check to see if the bottom gear is in the right position. Any answers would be helpful...thanks ahead of time.....

When you remove the plug for the timing hole you will see an index mark in the threads of the hole rotate the engine until you see the line next to the t mark this is the timing mark make sure the mark on the timing gear on the cam lines up with the index markes on the cam carrier when all marks are lined up make sure the piston is up,have the spark plug out durning this process it will make turning the engine over easier hope this helps.

Thanks a lot that did help a lot but one more question the manual says to make sure it is in the compression stroke I'm guessing that they mean the valves closed but I how do i make sure it is in the compression stroke if I don't have the head cover on yet with the rockers to open or close valves...thanks again
