This is about installing cams, but show you how to make sure the chains are right - not sure if this is what youre talking about.

ok take you chains and fold thm in half. there should be 2 links on each chain that are darker than the others, mark those with something like nailpolish you will be able to see.

i assume your motor is in safe mode, so take those chain and put it on the back gear on the crank and line the first red mark up with the dimple on the crank gear, now take the 2nd red mark and line it up with the dimple on the cam gear.... you will need to turn the cam gear slightly to line up the red mark with the dimple on the cam gear....*not the line on the cam gear* the small hole on the cam gear oppisite the line.

now do the same thing on the passanger side

now you should have 2 red links lined up on the small round hole on the crank gear and each cam gear should have the red mark on the chain lined up with the small hole on the cam gear


make absolutly sure that all the red marks line up because the chain likes to jump teeth, and rotate your motor acouple of times, and if its messed up you will know it, and if there is any resistance at all stop and start over, you will bend a valve if you put to much pressure
