i think i read somewhere that the au used those marks to line up yellow links on the timing chain. so not sure how you would set it up with out the coloured links, someone else on here may be able to help

that only applies to the hybrid engine not an normal EL or AU im pretty sure but I have now solve my problem with lining up the correct marks. the downfall tho I broke one of the gaskets but it didn't matter cause the nason timing kit I got came with 2 of each which was good but one of the gaskets two sets was slightly different but it wasn't the one I broke so I alright in the end.
