Question Setting initial timing

O.K I read the service manual on the M103. It either wasn't clear or I didn't understand it. It shows how to set timing with the front cover on. Are there any line up marks or a technique to set the timing after the head and valvetrain, including timing chain, have been replaced before putting the front cover on? looks to me like you would have to install the chain on the lower gear, hang it up on something, install front cover and then line up the camshaft gear with the cam. Also, what marks are used to align the cam gear to the cam?
