Allow me to illustrate ...

When the crank tdc is aligned to the "trailing edge" mark ......

The cam marks look like this ....

Now when the Cam marks align as per the diagrams (exhaust cam half notch lower) ........

Then the crank tdc mark looks like this ...
(poor picture , couldent get an uper angle on the gear teeth , added visuals )

The tdc is now well of the mark , a tooth gap away

Now ive read some of the horror stories about having to repeat this job , so if im missing somthing here please ..
let me know , ide like to get this right the first time .

Thanks in advance guys .
