Did you get it timed up correctly when putting the new chain on? I'm unsure of what you have to do as I haven't changed one yet. Is it running good, bad? You may also have a pocket of air in your system that needs let out.

The motor sounds good when idling and has lots of power when driving around was running warm before I put timing chain on if that helps any
