voodoo cam install please help

could someone give me some tips on how to do this correctly. iv read info and watched some youtube video's was just hoping to get some reasurrence on installing this. i have a 286/504 voodoo cam and summit double roller timing chain. i have the #1 piston all the way up. cam is in the block but there is #'s on the timing chain in different locations which threw me off a little. i thought when i opened the package i would have two dots to line up. if you cant tell i'm not a gear head but i have so much fun working on these motors and trying to learn. any help would be great appreciated.

also on a side question i put my 1pc rr main seal on and in the package there was another gasket that i dont see where it could go as it to big for anything i see. does anyone know what this gasket is for? pics attached are my timing chain, block, and that gasket.

thank you
brian

The A = Advance is so if you want to advance the timing , the R = Retard and is for if you want to retard the timing The 0 that's where most put it at. And then adjust it out at the distributer. JMO

The lower crankshaft dot is suppose to be at the 12 o'clock postion. The Camshaft dot is suppose to be at the 6 o'clock postion. Exactly not a tooth off either.

Don't forget that you need to rotate the crank 360* so the dots are 12:00 on the cam gear and 12:00 on the crank gear before you drop the dizzy in after you get the timing chain installed.

Just put cam dot at 6 and the crank dot at 12. This is only to help you align the dots without getting them a tooth off. This is not TDC though, you need to rotate the crank 360* to where both dots are at 12. This is where you drop the dist in. You can install the timing chain with both dots at 12 and use a straight edge to align without rotating it another 360*, much easier to do it dot to dot.

If you do it dot to dot and don't rotate the crank 360*, yes you will be 180* out.

Brian, All you need to do is after you have the dots lined up and the engine ready for the distributor, Then you will need to simply turn the engine over bring #1 back up "TOP" then install the distributor with the rotor pointing towards #1 on the distributer cap, If you do all this and then it should start you will most of the time have to adjust the rest out with the distributer, And best to use a good timing light when putting the final tune on it. JMO Now if it don't start right away you may need to turn the distributor alittle bit one way or the other then it will start.

when the cam is lined up as stated above the engine will be at tdc on # 6 instead of # 1. One rotation of the crank will bring it up on # 1. The other option is to drop it in at #6 without turning it. I have done this before.
