Ok, that worked and we have done that alignment of the marks. Here is our more specific question :
When we put the chains on the cams we put it initially at the 3 and 9 in the colored links. We had the cams positioned to have no spring tension. In this position the sprockets are around 45 degrees off their mark.
Then when we put on the sprockets on they were not aiming at their respective marks, so we turned each cam sprocket independently clockwise to come to its mark.
Then next we turned the crank sprocket to its mark.
Then we checked and the #1 piston is up (so it is TDC or close to TDC).
Is this accurate? Or do we need to put the chains on the cams while the sprocket is on its mark and there is spring tension?
