16V cam timing question

Is there an easy way to time the 16V cams?
Any way to do it without the dial gauges?

I've read this post by Overkill, but it's a little confusing to me.
The manual is not clear either.
OK, cam timing,...

The large cam sprocket has a notch larger than the woodruff key, I would think the key needs to be against the left side of the sprocket notch to help keep the gear from spinning. From the old washer marks and back plate marks, it looks like the key was at the middle of the gear notch.
'90 944S2 cab - sold after 20 years, will not be forgotten.
'04 Mercedes SL500 - Nice but my S2 was more fun to drive.
