The distance is 6 teeth on the cam gears and aux gear.  I marked it with a sharpie and turned the crank 90 degrees then, checked to see if the  spots were lined up.  I then marked the crank.  I then used a punch and made some permanent 90 degree marks.

The importance of using 90 degrees is that all the pistons are are half-mast so if/when you do turn a cam, the valves can't hit the pistons.  It seems the cams are prone to turning and are spring loaded when at TDC and also 90 degrees. This is also a good time to replace all the seals.  I found all of mine to be very hard crumbly worthless bits of old rubber. 

Good Luck
