Default VVT cam re-set after replacing cam seals?

I replaced the cam seals, requires removing the cam pulley's. I used the special cam looking tool.

I tried to follow the Haynes manual for re-installing and re-setting the VVT pulley. Bu the instructions were vague at best.

Now it won't start, and seems to spin over with no resistance.

Best case, the intake timing is off enough to reduce or eliminate compression. Worst case I now have some vent valves.

Even if I have to take the head off, I still need to know how to properly set the VVT cam.
