Good luck.
I evidentially like to live life on the edge.......I wasn't aware of that tip when I took the head off. I did set the crank to TDC and the cam sprocket tic mark also aligned with the #1 cam tower mark. So I should be in sync fairly closely. The sprocket will only go on one way, and the chain ain't moving as long as I don't rotate the crank. At least, that's what I keep telling myself :-)
