Well Happy 156 engine swap confirmation (extension of ather my other thread)

"This is what I've done with regards to the exhaust cam sensor. I marked the belt with tipex and plastic tied the belt to the pulleys then removed the exhaust cam sprocket changed the sensor for the 156 after taking off the 155 as the plugs are different. I then noticed the pulleys are different on the rear side as the 155 has one notch out off it and the 156 has four, so I used the pulley from the 156 as there is a locator on the cam and you can only put the sprocket on one way, so this is what I've done then put the belt back on, as the tipex marks on the belt no longer line up on the exhaust cam sprocket. I've turned the engine by hand and it turns without locking. Can you find out if this sounds right from guys that have done this swap before. Thanks paul"

Any advice appreciated.

made a mess of title lol

I'd get some cam locking tools and make sure it's timed up right.
