I figured this would allow me to realign everything exactly upon reassembly.

Will I still need to retime the engine once everything is put back together? Engine is still in the car, and access to cylinder #1 is pretty limited.

If I mark the cams, sprockets, and chains before I remove the sprockets and chains can't I reassemble exactly as removed with the end result being the exact same cam timing as before I started the repair?

Thanks for the help everyone,
