You didn't specify which engine, so I'll just give you the general instructions.

Make some marks before removing it. Mark the outer housing so you can get it back in with the timing close to where it is now. Also mark where the rotor is pointing. After putting it back in make sure that it is as close as possible to the marks, and then set the timing.

Can you hear the silence?
