if the belt is off, valves are at idle, so turn the crank to the mark, backing it up an eighth turn.
now bring the cam timing marks close to final, set the crank right, and add belt, adjusting the cams as needed.
if it was a 2.7, you'd have to ask peva, as they aren't square to the world..
their timing marks aren't what youthink they are.
the 3.5 and 3.2 are what you think the marks are.
tdc on crank mark, which is why you back it up a bit to stop valve clearance til the cams are in their close timing.
drivers side holds well, passenger will have a tendency to snap from spring pressure back to idle.
it's ok at the final timing.
a box end is best to hold it so it doesn't snap in any direction.
turning the passenger side cam gear inward a bit helps get the belt on at the right tooth.
