you could probably get away with doing this without pulling the engine buts its gonna make it alot harder.

remove the harmonic balancer pulley and the balancer, as far as i know a special puller is needed for the harmonic balancer. remove the timing chain cover and then youll see the chain. if the chain broke or jump a tooth while running the gears wont be properly aligned. there should be a dot on the upper and lower gear which need to be in line with eachother. you WILL need a manual for this. overall its not that hard to do.

Its located behind the waterpump on the front of the block, remove the waterpump and the timing chain cover is directly behind it. Then follow the manual for proper procedures of removing the pully ect. ect.
