Hmmm - OK - So my problem is this; I lost all of my chain slack when I was trying to put the cam sprocket back on (it suddenly pulled out of my hands) - tuirns out my vacuum pump spring tugged on it and now it is tight. So, I followed some advice and removed the vacuum pump (it was easy) - I was able to get back about 2 inches of chain, but that is no where near enough to get the chain back around the cam sprocket. My hydraulic tensioner is not installed, the vacuum pump is out, I can see the timing chain around the driver side of the sprocket (that sits behind the vacuum pump). What am I missing here? Am I supposed to try rotating the sprocket inside the area where the vacuum pump mounts? (I have not done this by the way)....

Thank you everyone for the endless supply of help and advice !
