Timing

Ok so I believe I have a cct issue, have the bike down to removed valve covers.

1. is there anyway to check timing with valve covers off and markings on each cam sprocket? I have no clue where to go from here

2. Is there anyway to gauge damage to internals without taking the heads off?
- I am looking to plug and play with new or rebuilt heads

3. If it comes to the point where I need to to remove each head to check internals, The bolt on the outside of the head and I see another on the inside, what others need to be removed to remove the head?

4. What am I looking for internally to say still good or no good?

Thanks

Check timing by following the CCT replacement procedure for finding TDC and the alignment for the cams for each pot in the Knowledgeable Base. You'll need to access & remove the alternator timing cover bolts.

And measure valve clearances and if any are way off then that's the sign of valve damage.

Well I am trying to add a picture but havent ever done so, but on closer inspection of the cam chain one side is aligned and the other is riding above the grooves a bit. after reading cct replacement how do I get the chain back into the grooves?

No. 9 is the cap through which you see the timing marks on the flywheel and remove no. 10 to turn the crank round. If you haven't already done so remove the spark-plugs to make turning it over easier.
