Timing Adjustment without brass links.. Question

Hey guys, I’m new to the whole predator scene, made the switch from the raptor 660 and have been very pleased thus far. Recently I noticed coolant in my oil. Starting going to town on it to replace the head gasket. head gasket ended up being fine, but it was the lower base gasket. The timing chain came off the bottom sprocket and I’m trying to figure out how to set the timing. I have the cams in the right position with the intake marks at 9 and 12. And the exhaust cam just 1 tooth advanced. Now i read somewhere about removing the clutch to line something up with a gear? That might not be right but I’m hoping someone can lead me in the right direction because my timing chain does not have any brass links that I can line up at the twelve o’clock spot. Any ideas?
