Well, I know the camshaft didn't move, the mark on the gear is still matched up to the mark on the tower. The reason I thought it came off the crank gear is I started to turn the crank pully, and the cam gear did not move. In fact I turned the crank pully about 30 degrees and still no movement, so then I turned the pulley ccw to get back in the same spot it was, which is when I realized the two ends of the chain weren't meeting. So apparently the chain can slip off the crank gear. Now that I am looking at the oil pan, I am realizing that's not going to be an easy job at all. Is there any other possibilities here?
