You've got a lot of work ahead of you.

The problem is that you don't know the timing of the cam or the IP with respect to the crankshaft.

So, your only choice is to start from the beginning.

If the new chain is installed, first see if the engine will rotate. If it does, then you need to set the crank damper to 0 and see if the marks on the camshaft tower are aligned. If they are close (and they will be if you can rotate the engine), then you'll need to adjust the camshaft until they are almost dead on.

Once that's done, then the IP will need to be checked to see if you still have that timing. If the chain came off the IP timer (unlikely), then it's even more of a chore to get it corrected.
