1978 Cadillac Seville, 5.7L.350 olds, fuel injected. The manual says align the marks. When aligned it is not at compression stroke! When opposite it is at compression stroke & #1. Is it ok to put together since it is at T.D.C. &Amp; at #1? It was like that when I dismantelled.I was replacing water pump so I decided to put new chain. I have tried turning crankshaft to align, but when I bump engine to align marks # 1, compression stroke is perfectly aligned but opposite side. The crank mark being on top. The cam mark being on top also, should be on bottom. If aligned together it seems to be not pushing my rag out of the #1 spark plug hole. Am I doing it right?
