onother question if the intake cam is bolted down without the chain on it should it turn freely by hand? mine dosnt
Sounds as if the cam cap was over torqued... a very easy thing to do... I have seen bikes with this condition run for many years but since you had a chain jump I would check into it a little closer...

Also, the recommended torque is 86 in-lb (NOT 86 ft-lb), with the general consesus being to use even less or about 75 in-lb.

As stated above 75in/lbs is good.
Keep your chain as a backup if you are 100% sure it's not stretched.
Have you checked that your tensioner is fully functional?
If you take the cam off, are there score marks on the cap where the cam rides/spins on it (journals)?
Is your locating half ring in place?
