CAUTION: Excess slack in the chain must be kept to the chain tensioner side (movable guide) of the cylinder block when installing timing chain or the camshaft sprockets will not be correctly timed to the crankshaft sprocket.

6. Make sure the silver colored link plates are located over the pip mark on the cam sprockets only. The crankshaft sprocket tooth must be pointed directly downward at the 6 o'clock position between the two silver colored links. The pip mark on the crankshaft sprocket will be aligned with the timing mark on the cylinder block.
There you go.

So why were you replacing the timing chain to begin with?Was it dumping too much gas before you changed the timing chain?

So you replaced the head or head gasket?What happened there?Why did you have to do that?Was it flooding the engine before that?Also do you have any code's?What is the compression on each cylinder?I need to know all the detail's because i'm not there and don't know the history of the car. Do you have spark?WHat is your fuel pressure?
