You can bring the engine to TDC on #1 and see if the marks on the cam tower and thrust washer align. That will tell you if the chain jumped - the marks will be 'way off. Look at closely at the rocker arms with the cam lobe up and you may see that the exhaust valves are not closing all the way. If either is the case, you have bent valves and the head needs to come off.
