Default Cam gear reinstall alignment

Hey guys, I can't seem to find my Chilton and google is failing to correctly cover the information I need. I have a 99 head and I'm trying to put the cam gears back on but can't figure where the notches on the cams go relative to the 3 possible spots on the gears..

Anyone have a picture?

Really I just need to know which place on the cam gear the notch goes for each cam. They came back from the machine shop uninstalled and I can't recall how they mount.

Bump on cam should line up with the I mark on the cam gear on the Intake side and E mark on the Exhaust side. I hope that makes sense.

It's usually a little easier to point the #1 lobes away from each other, then align the marks like you'd be timing it, they should be +/- 20* and easy to see which goes where.

Intake dowel pin lines up with I. Exhaust dowel pin lines up with E.

So the picture CLEARLY showing this information in post #2 was not good enough.

I'm done helping people.

No it did. I was pretty drunk for most of the weekend and your picture didn't load (so all I saw was 'it should be marked') on my phone when I wrote that response.
