Install the crankshaft sprocket.
Be sure the timing mark on the crankshaft sprocket is pointing toward the mark on the chain damper.

Place the timing chain over the camshaft sprocket and hold the sprocket so the timing mark is pointing down and the timing chain is hanging off the sprocket.
Loop the timing chain under the crankshaft sprocket and install the camshaft sprocket on the camshaft.
Verify that the marks are aligned; the camshaft sprocket will be at the 6 o'clock position and the crankshaft sprocket at the 12 o'clock position. NOTE
The No. 1 piston will be at TDC and the No. 4 piston will also be at TDC but on the compression stroke.
