Are you referring to the colored links on the timing chain lining back up with the marks on the cam gears and crank gear after getting them set and rotating the engine?

Are you unsure of your original installation? If you had the marks right in the first place, then you have nothing to worry about. As far as to answer your question, it would be a lot of turns before the links match back up. I don't know how many but it would definitely be much much faster and easier to bring cyl 1 back up to TDC, and remove the chain and reinstall it if you are unsure.

Is that what you were wondering?

It's not like doing a timing belt with no markings on the belt and relying on eyeball to line up marks on a gear to a mark on a cylinder head. In those cases you would turn the engine over twice and re check your marks to make sure your timing is still on.
