Take cover off camshaft cover on top left side of motor. Next remove the Flywheel inspection plug on near recoil starter. Use a nickel and a pair of pliers as this can be hard and most slotted screw drivers are not that wide. Remove the timing chain tensioner and reassemble as per instructions. Tie the chain up with a wire so it will not fall down in head and remove the sprocket with impact wrench. Remove the recoil starter cover (no gaskets required for reassembly.). Using a tool rotate the crankshaft till you see the "T" in the Flywheel inspection plug hole. Next replace the sprocket for the cam shaft with correctly (it is notched on the back). The camshaft sprocket has a mark on it near the teeth that should line up with a projection on the top middle portion of the Camshaft Cover. This will take a degree of manipulation.. MAKE SURE that the sprocket is full on the cam shaft. Using an impact wrench and red thread locker (permatex) or similar reinstall the bolt for the sprocket. Next replace the timing chain tensioner. This HAS to be done correctly. I did it wrong first and nearly ruined my engine when the chain almost broke.
