      Here are three pictures that should able to help you.

      First align your crank pulley to top dead center.

      You'll align the middle right sprocket (Balancing shaft sprocket).
      The bottom sprocket is your crank.
      The top sprocket is the oil pump sprocket.

      Align the balancing shaft sprocket mark with the hole.

      Take off and install the oil pump sprocket to take off and to install the chain.

      Not all the oil pumps have a timing mark. I usually dont even look for one. The easy way to install the chain correctly is to have the balance weights completely at bdc when piston 1 is at tdc.
