Cam Phaser replacement

I have a 2009 5.4 f150 and doing a cam phasers Job. After removing the old phasers I find the timing marks are not lining up at all with the mark in the new phaser. The pin is seated in the back, and it fits right and straight. What did I do wrong? As long as the other side will match the same amount of jumped teeth dies it matter?
