Welcome to the forums. On the bottom timing mark, there should be two marks, an "F" and a "T". You will want to line the "T" up.

On the top timing mark, the timing mark will go straight up and there should be two lines on the cam gear that lay parallel with the top of the head, one on each side of the cam gear.

Also, make sure the lobes on the cam are facing down.

there isn't any marks on the timming chain cam sprocket except the two lines on the timming sprocket..not sure where you got the top timming mark from..i'm guessing you were refering to the two lines that lay horizonal to the head ?..that is the only timming marks on the timming chain cam lobe sprocket.

Some Hondas have a circle or punch mark at the top of the cam gear in addition to the two lines. I couldn't remember if the 350 had it or not.

Yeah, I just forgot. It's been a long time since I worked on one of those.
