If the chain gets loose enough it can skip a tooth. Try turning the engine manually and see if you can get the slots for the cam locking tool to line up. As far as I remember they should both be vertical at the same time. That should give you a clue.
I agree. I had the same issue with mine, the chain pads wore out and one completely slipped out of the way and got the chain loose. Take a look at my show&tell thread, that may give you an idea how deeply you will have to dig into the engine. I think it`s possible to fix it without pulling the engine out, it`s not an easy job though with the engine in place.
