need help installing new cams 156 2.5 v6 24v

This is my first post here
I was wondering if anyone had some info on the best way to set up new cam timing after removing cams from heads.
I have the cams sitting there ready to be installed .
Any info would be great

You'll need a set of cam locks for it and (ideally) a dtc gauge. In a nutshell:

set #1 piston at TDC using dial gauge
Fit cams, and lock them into place with the cam locks
Fit and tension cambelt

Don't know about Australia, but camlocks can be bought in the UK from a few places - ebspares, totallyalfa, etc.
