What are the signs of a timing chain that has jumped a tooth or two on one bank & not the other ?
How is that different from advancing or retarding the cam ?

Well, you could check the temperature of each exhaust manifold/header. They should be pretty much dead nuts with each other.

You could do a compression check and see if both banks match each other. Although I don't know if one tooth will make a huge difference, they should be the same if they are correct.

And by jumping a tooth, that IS retarding/advancing, depending which direction it jumped.

If it jumped backwards, you advanced it. If it jumped forward, you retarded it.
