Thanks for all the input. I'm going to double check the chain guides alignment and compare tensioners. The reason I rotated the chains over and over (always forward at the rotor sprocket 36mm nut) was to insure all the brass links aligned as per the manual. All primary and secondary brass links align as per all timing marks on case and the 10 visible marks on sprockets. Just to help clarify the illustration in manual. What I'm looking at and the manual appear the same.I'll let you know what I find today.

Just be aware that the cam chain tensioners are hydraulic and when the engine is running they tighten up the cam chains by using the oil pressure to operate the hydraulic part of the tensioner. When the engine is not running the chains will not be under as much tension.

I would be wary about turning the motor over multiple times
by hand.you could damage the crank bearings through lack of oil supply .
