most likely there is a line on one of the 'tabs' that swing by the crank sensor, that mark should go at 12 0colck. that puts the pistons at their halfway point. DO NOT use any arrow/triangle on the front of the sprocket.

The crank keyway goes to 6:00 or down and when in that position on the edge of the whole gear is a notch.  Don't use that triangle on the front edge of the gear use the notch on the back edge.  It lines up with the notch in the oil pump on the top edge.

 

This Ebay auction has the image the right way "up".
