Remove the valve covers. Remove the distributors, line the crank to top
dead center. Eyeball the dots on the back of the rear cam chain gears.
If they're not pointing directly at each other, loosen the front cam
gear bolts, whack the gear with a brass/plastic hammer to loosen it. If
you don't have one, use a piece of wood between it and the hammer.
Adjust both heads as needed for the dots line up with crank at TDC.
Tighten and reinstall everything... You 'should ' go back and recheck
tensioner length, but if you had it right before, it should be fine.
