Default KA24E cam gear postiion question

With the timing pointer on the crank pointing to the "0" mark, KA24E engine,at TDC, I know the cam gear keyway is supposed to be at the 12 O'clock position, does my gear look like it's slightly off to the right?


It's really hard to tell as I was telling Devin when he was helping me because the valve cover surface (top of the head) is slightly lower on the drivers side.


Pic of how mine is below:

Looks good. The yellow mark on the crank pulley should be aligned with the timing pointer.

Mine doesn't have a yellow mark but I had the crank pointer at the zero mark, cam gear was how it is in pic above and rotor was pointing to # 1 plug wire.


Devin was telling me on the first cam holder ( not sure what you call it) that there is an arrow the key way should be lined up with, mine looked like it was lined up.

the position of the cam is normally with respect to the surface of the valve cover or cylinder deck. so if the motor leans. it will look off center compared to 12 off the ground

me? just that if the motor has a slant or tilt to it, clarify how to read a timing mark.
