Right. Where are those alignment marks? All the timing marks I can find online are for chain installation, which show where to put the 'yellow' links.
I count 4 marks on each cam in those photos, a little circle with an 'L', and a triangle with an arrow. In the pics, the drivers bank seems to align the 'L'/circle marks with the bright links, and the passenger bank seems to use the arrow/triangle marks. All these marks are pointed in all directions, to match the chain'* bright links.
Where are the 'alignment marks', that tie to the crank position? On other cars I've worked on there is an arrow that points up when the crank is at TDC; I don't see anything like that on these cam gears.
