I am on my way to replace my water pump. everything wet well......

I took the cam sprocket (close to the car battery) off. Before I took it off, I did not put the mark on the sprocket to lineup with the mark on the timing belt cover, now, I do not rember exactly the position the sprocket should align with the cam shaft. Looking at the back of the sprocket, I see a small cylindrical protrusion, I think I should linup (slide it into) the notch on the cam shaft, is this correct? also, I kind of expecting a pin (just like the one on the crankshat, but I do not see one. I do not know if I lost it or not....can some let me know? thanks.

My car is 93 Legacy 2.2 engine...

You are right the round dowel on the back of the cam sprocket goes in that notch. Then turn the cams so the notch on the outer edge of the cam pulley lines up with 0 degrees, or straight up if thats more clear.

On the crankshaft gear the key tooth should be pointing straight down and the pointy gear ears should have a notch that points up to the top of the oil pump.

Thanks for your reply. I really appreciated it.

I guess there is no key for the cam sprocket.
