    You need special tools to line up the crankshaft and camshafts. Should have researched this first.

    If you could put it back exactly as I was without marking everything you would be a professional. The reluctor ring is on the pulley and it has to be perfect for the crank sensor to read #1 for firing sequence. If you get lucky it might run. To do it right there is a tool to install through the block to line the crankshaft and another to align the cams then the bolt to hold the pulley at #1 and a holder for torquing the crank bolt.
