timing marks How close is close enough

I tried moving one link in either direction and it's still off by half a tooth?

Will this be on time?

There is no close enough. The pictures dont show the crank gear mark very well but it looks like if you turn the crank back a hair it will be lined up with the cam gear correctly. A closer pic will make it easy to see.
