Aah I see. Let's start from the beginning then. Standing in front of the car and starting from YOUR left , looking at the cams you should see RE, RI, LI, LE on each of the camshafts.(R for right bank, L for left bank, I for intake and E for exhaust) Right bank camshafts are marked with one dot, left bank with 2 dots on the shaft itself. To align the camshafts to each other each cam shaft gear has a mark on it. Draw an imaginary line between the centre of the camshaft and the centre of the pulley. The alignment mark should be between the two along this imaginary line. The result will be that RI an RE will be at the top of each gear. The same with the left bank.

It explains setting the timing further. Get these set up correctly and then we can dig further. I can post a diagram but haven't figured out how on Fixya yet.

Testimonial: "you were right the right bank exaust cam was off three teeth. thaks so much."
The cam pulley notch goes in line with the mark on the front cam bearing cap and the crankshaft pulley goes at 12 o'clock - its got a tiny mark on the back lip that lines up with the mark on the cover .
Did you take the cams off in one lump or split them ? if you did come back on here for how to time them up .
