If I remember correctly there is something in place at the bottom of the crank sprocket that will prevent the chain from moving away from it far enough for it to jump a tooth. The vacuum pump spring mechanism is what probably caused the chain to "pull" down into the engine on that side. If you were able to pull the chain back into position on the cam (overcoming the vacuum pump mechanism) then you are probably ok. Let me suggest that you tie wrap the chain to the cam sprocket before you go much further.
