Default Questions about B16 cams

I got a disassembled B16 head, and the cam shafts are in a seperate box with the cam gears attached still. I have 2 questions.
1) Can I bolt on new cam gears right now without cause a timming problem or anything like that?
2) The guy I bought the head off didn't label the cams intake/exhaust, so how can I tell which ones which?

There a key in each of the cam gears that makes it impossible to align them incorrectly. Just take the bolt out and you'll see what I mean.
