Did he pull it out and put it back in? Being at TDC is not going to make or break ya. Long as the engine does not move, it will be fine. I've swapped plenty in bikes and cars without being at TDC without issue. If he pulled it out and replaced it without resetting it....DON'T RUN THE ENGINE! You can do a lot of damage if there is too much tension on the chain guide, or worse, if there ain't enough and a valve smacks a piston.

Spose. Sometimes I forget that not everyone is as attentive as I am. I'm used to just knowing how to do it and running with it...haha.
