2004 Hyundai Santa Fe 3.5 Timing belt replacement

Doing my timing belt on a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe LX 3.5 170,000 miles, friends at work helped me by putting money together and order timing belt kit from rock auto, had all the seals.
Anyway book says after timing marks on sprockets, cs, lined up... May have to rotate right cam sprockets 50 degrees counterclockwise,
? The right (inner) cam can be rotated 50 degrees counterclockwise, but the outer right cam timing mark rolled back to about 45 degrees before timing mark on engine.
Do I rotate that cam clockwise, then line up?

Hello MRG and welcome to the Kia forums . It would be best if you posted in Sorento forums for the same year as they both had same engines some times small variations.
Sorento experts were probably not watching this section.
