If you are asking about timing -- The cam gear has a dot in it. Put the dot on the cam gear at BDC (bottom), put the crank at TDC (crankpin at the top) and carefully slip the cam housing and crankcase together meshing the crank pinion TDC and the cam gear dot BDC.

If you are asking about axial position of the crank in the case. The counterweight end of the crank must be tight against the bearing. I usually cool the crank in the deep freeze. I ready the case, collet and drive washer. I heat the drive washer with heat gun. Retrieve the cold crank and stuff it in snug against the bearin, put on the collet, slip on the hot drive washer (use a glove), put on a scrap chunk of wood, then tighten the prop nut nice and firm. Wait for all temperatures to stabilize. Then remove the prop nut and scrap wood. Proceed on to assembling the rest of the engine.
