this is really pissing me off, i can't get it at all...

Once i allign those marks i can put the belt on right?

Also it looks like all my "valves"? are up and the lobes are just bouncing over them when i turn how do i fix it? I can make it line up but it just jumps past it if i let it go wfrom the socket wrench.

You need to hold the cams exactly in place this is easier with 2 people. several clamps and wrenches help with this as well. I told you to read.net but no. had to cowhoy it didn't ya :gay:

FWIW the crank will move if you are not carefull when tensioning the system and the chance of slack on the top between the cam gears is a pain in the ***.

It will hold them rigid in place, no jumping.
