    Default 8hp Honda 4 stroke BF8A - how to install timing belt?

    My friend tried being mechanic and took off the timing belt on his 8 hp Honda BF8A and could not figure how to put back now the timing is all off. Not sure what year this is, pretty new though, serial# 1301007. I see one dot on the cam shaft pulley and the six marks (lines) on the timing belt. I donít see any marks on the crankshaft pulley.

    How do I align things to get this belt back on correctly?
