Will the pistons always fall into the same pattern on a 360 degree turn when lined up to the timing mark?
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

360 degree rotation of the crankshaft will return all the pistons to the starting position. So yes.
This video nicely explains that:

Are you trying to replace the timing chain?
I have attached the instructions for that as well.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you.
