Setting up the gearing in the wd1.

Can some one please guide me step by step, crank - cam - mag and impulse how you set these out as I'm having trouble with my timing I think. Assume crank and Magneto gears are already out on the bench.... Thank you.

Hello Knowledge masters of the WD 1 -8 engines, would someone be able to enlighten me of the reason that the WD1-8 engine i have has two punch marks on the magneto gear " on the magneto side of the gear, not visible from the cover plate side as indicated in the manual " were as in the Manuals for the engine , only one mark is discussed.
This unit was is model number 84561 and was distributed by VETSAK in South Africa somewhere around the 70,S ??? I think ,
