timing assemble help

83 351Windsor. someone gave me an engine partially disassembled and im trying to get it back together. the cam gear has an obvious index mark. the crank gear has 3 keyways one of them w/ an O or a zero aligned w/ it. there are 3 other letters ( A, R, and B) not quite lined up w/ the other 2 keyways. im pretty sure its aftermarket. ive got pics but dont know how to post them.

Re: timing assemble help

Line it up with the zero and that should be what you need. the other 2 marks are probably 3 degree's advanced and 3 degree's retarded. If the engine is stock i'd just go with zero.
