When installing the new timing chain set, line up the dimples on both the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets. Either have both the camshaft and crankshaft dimples at 12 o'clock. Or have the camshaft dimple at 6 o'clock and the crankshaft dimple at 12 o'clock. You'll have to refer to a repair manual that covers your engine. Most GMs, except Cadillac, are cam at 6 o'clock and crank at 12 o'clock. HTH. - Jim
