Quick test for checking your timing chain. Remove your distributor cap, put a ratchet on your crankshaft bolt, and work the crank back and forth. The longer it takes the distributor rotor to start moving the more slack you have in your chain. The distributor is driven by the cam so if it's not moving when you rotate the crank neither is the cam.
