There are marks that you are are supposed to line up but I have had better luck just messing with it to find a good balance in performance between forward and reverse. You should be able to see marks from the lock down screws to get it in the ballpark to get it started. You can also make sure its all close by removing the spark plug then sticking something down the hole to the top of the piston then rotating the engine till the piston comes all the way up. At this point the cam should be holding the points open.
