Timing Chain and Tensioner Replacement

Ok guys I'm replacing my timing chain and tensioner and can't find a diagram for getting the timing marks set for the intake and exhaust marks. Anyone have a link?

I'm about ready to order the tensioner and in have two questions.

Do i need to remove the valve cover or can i just take it out from the rear? I have read many contradicting threads on here and .net

Can someone please paste a link for the newer style? I don't want to buy the wrong one...

You're not gonna buy the wrong one as it is a replacement part and old is no longer in production. I highly suggest pulling the valve cover and zip tying the chain to the sprockets

If it has the bump on the head bolt it is the revised version, also the plunger is held in place with a C clip on the new one.
