Just went around to work and pulled a rocker cover off an old engine we had laying around. The cam pin does line up with the timing mark on the cam gear. Disregard the mark on your cam gear and use the pin.

hmmm....not on mine...and its running perfect...there is a definite mark on the sprocket..a little dot...someone on FFAU explained it
You can Just make it out in this photo...

The dot on the OUTER edge of the cam sprocket(yellow arrow) sits
3mm above level with the top of the head. The line(blue arrow) is supposed to line up with a painted mark on a new chain which wears off after a while.

LOL...yea thats my only real problem, not knowing if the lower timing marks behind the cover are lined up!
other wise, thats what id do....damn damn damn....
As mentioned Dave, I doubt the Aux shaft alignment is an issue with EL's - just pull your dizzy cap and make sure the rotor is at the right position when the crank is at TDC(#1&6 piston on the rise), if not, pull the dizzy and realign it . . . :P Later when the engine is running, you can fine tune the timing.
The only issue I can see with that is, if it was way out you could end up with the TFI against the block, where there isn't room.
Well that would be apparent with the crank at TDC, If the rotor was a fair amount out of alignment with the 'finish' mark - Dave's Gregory's details the TFI and rotor positioning when refitting the dizzy.

OK, the head is off, so much easier than I thought it would be...

One problem...what do I do about that little shim thing that is still in the head? How do I get it out, or will the people who skim the head be able to remove it?
the machinist will remove it easily , the au gsk is a drop on and dont forget new head bolts , only $30.00 and money well spent , read the manual CAREFULLY when reassembling
good luck

Its only the locating dowl for the head and the block, you use an ezi out or if you can get hold of one, a bolt that is a snug fit in the hole clamp around the dowel with vice grips, twist and pull. Otherwise who ever does the machining van get it out, just remember to get it back off them to put back in the block before the head goes on.
