Default Need help timing 75 xj12

hi....
i just rip apart a 75 xj12 because i had no comperssion on cylinder 3.
i took off the head and found out that the valve seat fell down which

The best way to do that job is with the factory tool to set the position of the camshafts before you remove a cylinder head, I think you need a camshaft setting gauge and a factory shop manual.
