Default layman cam cover

Hi all yes this old chestnut but I just want a simple yes or no on what's in my head.
Yes I have a manual and this is what I think I am doing....So relieved stress on the pushrods cover removed (my mates05 is cracked this is why we are doing it) we have removed cams and now we are ready to fit them.
I line up the the cams as in manual then cover goes back on. But now I am thinking what about top dead centre etc or do the timing marks being aligned on cams take care of that automatically. The 05 has nothing behind timing plug and i can see nothing in the manual.
Can someone enlighten me.
Thanks

Mick says in case you don't know

Quote:
Do not use the ignition timing hole mark. Proceed as follows ...
Position the pinion gear mark at approximately the 11:00 position by rotating the engine. Use either the rear wheel or the kicker
Install cam #2 so that the mark lines up with the pinion gear mark. This may require moving the pinion gear mark a bit so they match perfectly
Temporarily, partially uninstall #2 while you install #1
Install #3, then #4 and finally the generator idler gear

TDC, full advance timing, and cam gear alignment are 3 different things, and never happen at the same time.
