I don't know what you are working on so.......

I guess the number one most basic thing that applies to EVERY engine is that
when you get the timing gears/chain uncovered so you can see them,

align the timing marks on the gears, etc. where they are suppose to be BEFORE taking them apart.

That way the pistons and valves will be in proper sequence before you try to install the timing gears. Some engines if you rotate the crankshaft without the cam turning, the pistons will hit the valves. :nono:
