First I like to say thanks for your response.

There are 2 shaft. I already have the crank and cam shaft in line. I kind of understand the right balance shft. Do I leave the crank and cam shaft at TDC and then rotate the right shaft until it's align or do I rotate all shaft together. Once done, how about the left shaft. How is the left shaft suppose to align.

Thanks again,
Robert

The crankshaft should be aligned at TDC and with right shaft locked, the balancer shaft would not be turning.

Install and get the left shaft to match the other shafts. After installation of the belts, all shaft markings should match accordingly, crankshaft at TDC with camshaft aligned, balancer shafts as per diagrams.

I followed the diagram and now have the balance shaft in line. I put all back together and the car is running like a champ.

Thanks again for all your help.

Many regard,
Robert
