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?

I'll just rotate clockwise, I'd have to rotate it 245 degreesl or so counterclockwise not 50 degrees like the book
Ok back together, had to replace fuel pump also, probobly the original culprit, but TB had to be done anyway, whew crappy job, no room to work, started up, but valve cover really leaked redo gasket and check again. This time I'l remove engine lift I think its interrupting the way the cover is suppose to drop down, if not warped(checking that as well).
