How to install gear to gear timing

I have a dual idler timing gear (gear to gear timing) that I'm not quite sure how to install. I have a 350 sbc. One side of the idler gears has two flat sides. The other side has one flat side and one raised stud. The gear with the stud is slightly larger. When I install it, does the stud end go in toward the block (and which gear goes on what side) or does the stud face out? Also on these 350's, what holds the cam in? I didn't notice anything that keeps the cam from sliding forward.

Did it come with instructions? If not, what brand is it? You can probably go to the manufacturers web site and download the installation instructions.

It doesn't say. I bought two motors(a 305 and a 350) from a guy but they were in pieces. I'm rebuilding the 350 and I came across the gear to gear timing in my bucket of parts.

The dual idlers should just slide into place, you might need to turn the cam a tiny tiny bit to get it to seat 100%

Thanx for the Summit links, that helped me out. The funny thing is I called the tech support at Summit and asked him and he said the large gear goes on the left which is right but said the tapered stud points to the timing chain cover, which is wrong. It's suppose to go in toward the block but not touch it. LOL and autozone had all the info wrong. Thanx guys
