cam timing marks

question is regarding timing marks on cam shaft gears; what are the marks supposed to look like? passenger side gear has what looks like an "L" with an arrow at the top. mitchell on demand shows 1 of 3 posibilities; an "R" with an arrow at the top of it, a "O" with a "R" next to it, an elongated mark. not sure which diagram to go by... yet another picture shows crank shaft marks at 6 o'clock position elongated mark at 12 o'clock mark on passenger cam gear. elongated mark at about 2 o'clock on drivers cam gear & says this is verifying correct alignment of all timing marks. motor in question is in an 05 f150 xlt. only the passenger side is off; the gold links are ligned up with a "L" at the arrow at the top. truck is setting code poo12 (cam shaft timing retarded bank A). truck has slight rough idle, no power.

You need to pull the timing cover and set up both cams as described.
