You have to loosen the CAS on the back of the head and rotate it. Do it in tiny amounts and check your timing after each move.

You should buy a shop manual.

Cam angle sensor, backside of the valve cover. Get a shop manual, you're going to need it.

Read the timing section. Should pretty much apply to you.

Before you loosen the retaining bolt, use a scribe to mark a line across the body of the CAS and the cap at the back of the head which it abuts. This was you have a reference point for where it was before you started. (I'm assuming purely from the tenor of the conversation that you do not own a timing light.)
