o.k guys...it sounds like it is pretty straight forward but i didnt get them on perfectly last time so a step by step would be nice...what happened last time is that I slapped the cam gears on and then when I went to put the belt on it didnt line up exactly so I had to loosen them (w/o the belt on) so it wasnt exactly at zero (drove me up a wall). Anyways...step by step instructions please.

The way I do it is have every thing on and in place , cam gears , belt , TDC , Plate in cams but cam bolts tight by hand this way the belt is in the grooves etc , then with everything timed and in place get some one to hold the cams wih a big wrench and tighten the cam bolt , I put oil on the cam bolt where it contacts the gears this will help so it doesnt bind and try to turn the gear when tightening the cam bolts
