you need to consult the manual for that. In general, you need to put the piston at TDC and the cam lobes need to face a certain way (this is where you need a manual) usually down so they won't place any pressure on the rocker arms, opening the valves...valves need to be closed. Cam chain and gear can then be fitted.

you'll probably need to visit g-man's site www dot suzukidr350 dot com

Yep, TDC "T" mark on flywheel lined up with left half center case pointer (it's at about the 10 o'clock position on the case near the flywheel. Cam lobes down and the two marks at the end of the cam on level with the cam bearing surface of the head. Cam w/cam sprocket pin at two o'clock. :thumbsup:
