I done what you said about turning the crank to F and its all lined up properly at the rear now so all good, thanks.

Only thing now is where the pictures in the haynes manual show where the marks lining up to the chain are meant to be mine are different but will this matter? Its like it on front and rear cylinder before i touched anything. Ive attached pictures showing what i mean. Where it says number 1 on where the chain should start my number 1 is where ive circled the chain ring on the picture. The markings on the sprockets are where the haynes are but my chain is over to the right 1 link more than the haynes one, will this matter.

No that's fine. Mine was like that as well. Important when re installing them is the 16 pins as indicated in the diagram. Also ensuring there's no slack in the front of the chain between the crank sprocket and the cam sprocket. All the slack must be on the back of the chain on the tensioner side. It'll be clearer when you put them in. Take some clear photos as well before disassembling for reference later.
