Default ej25 vvt cam gear fault

not sure if this is the right area, my 1st post in this forum, i have rebuilt my ej25 and can't get the right hand cam sprocket to re time properly [all the marks line up but it won't run, it will run for about 2 seconds the backfire and spluuter], i noticed the inner part of the pulley turned when i was loosening the center bolt and didn't return . can anyone tell me where the vanes on the pulley rotor be set , they were fully clockwise looking at the front of the pulley, we removed the cover and set the rotor in the center of it's travel and put it all back together but it still won't run and makes a clacking sound on the right hand side, so thinking maybe it needs to be set fully counter clockwise.. have checked solenoids and spool valves all working ok, it brings up a vvt error in the ecu .. does it pump oil to one side at low rpm so as to hold in position then to the ther side as the rpm rises
any help really appreciated
