Any help would be so great.

There are several pictures, the best ones scanned from a magazine and floating around old posts. I think Motoman393 has a copy on his site.
The gist is to roll the crankshaft to TDC (the I, not the H, lines up in the timing hole) and the cams both pointing away from each other. Then line the outside punch marks on the cam sprockets (the one horizontal from the camshaft and to the rear for intakes and to the front for exhausts) up with the top of the head. This is WR timing. Then count links to get 12 instead of 13 between the top punch marks, leaving the intake lined up and turning the exhaust. I zip tie the intake when I get it lined up and count for the exhaust. Remember the rear is the slack side (tensioner side) of the chain so if it is a little high instead of exactly lined up with top of head, the tensioner will pull it back down.

Also, as you've undoubtedly read, be careful about the retainer falling into the engine...

BTW I added a "jimmy rigged" fix for fixing a stripped out shift shaft. There was an interest on the WR426 board a few days ago so I decided to post my experiences http://motoman393.fo...shiftshaft.html
