This picture is from the Honda factory service manual but, everything is 180º backwards in this picture. All the information pictured is backwards but, correct and dead on balls accurate and that makes it easy to time your cam. At least it was easy for me once I realized the cam sprocket was pictured backwards.

Always time the left cylinder in a Honda 1st.
I will scan the other page for you to read the text that Mr Honda wanted the dealer technician to read.

Here, lets try this and maybe it will help. There should be an attachment that will open a PDF that shows two pages of the Honda Service Manual.

i think that is the way you do it. i wouldn't see why you would time after you put the tensioner in, but i have been known to be completely wrong at times.
STEVE!
He's the man with the plan right there. if someone should steer you straight it be that man.
