1. my manual asks me to aline the alternator rotor to the timing mark to the housing (LT)

2. then im suppose to position my timing marks on my cam chain sprocket parallel to the surface of the cylinder head.

3. when i do so i loose my mark on the alternator w/ the housing (LT)

Is that suppose to happen or how do i go about keeping my timing marks aligned????

Thanks

They MUST be simultaneously aligned.... Try "skipping" the chain on the camshaft sprocket so that occurs.....

You don't need to add oil just to adjust the cam chain, it's a spring/mechanical linkage. Just follow the manual's instructions and you'll be fine.
