OP it has been decades (plural!) since I got to fiddle with one but do recall that timing marks are easy and obvious. Crank lined up to TDC look for the mark on the cam that lines up with a notch in the front cam bearing cap. If the guides are in decent shape roll a chain in it. If not.... Replace guides (pull the pins they pivot on... easier then it sounds) and replace guides.
