5.4l replaced timing chains and everything lined up. Tensioners are on and looks good. I went to spin the motor by hand to see if everything lined up and when I got back to tdc, the timing marks didnt line up. Is this normal.

Did you put engine no.1 piston on compression stroke/TDC and align the cam and crank correctly to its marking as indicated in the repair manual
