Answers :

All these suggestions are spot on remove the cover loosen off the 10 mm and pull the cam sprocket back into place.
when the sprocket and chain are fitted again lightly push on the little knob next to the 10mm bolt you backed off just a little presser not to much and then tighten up the bolt.

if you are not shore if the chine has slipped wind the engine over by hand twice before you start it if it is free it should be ok thouse engines are bullet prof you should be ok
On the timming cover lower lh side you will see a small alloy cover held on by to 6mm bolts remove this cover and behind it there is a nut loosen it an you will be able to correct the problem
