the timing chain tensioner is hydraulic and either out of adjustment or defective. You need to remove the timing chain cover and reset the mechanical correlation between the crankshaft and the camshafts. also the other ignition time marks are on the crankshaft harmonic balancer and the cam cover. Do not crank the engine with the timing out of sequence or you'll destroy the engine.

SOURCE: Timing Marks to replace the
It was so easy once you posted us the diagram, being a Japanese import, one never knows what if anything has been done to these vehicles, and without the relevant paperwork they can be a nightmare.

Timing the Cam to the Crank
There are several ways to time the cam to the crank. Be sure to check the manual before you install the timing chain or belt.
If the old parts are available, carefully compare the new gears or sprockets with the old ones. Check the keyway and timing marks just in case there might have been an error made in manufacturing. Sprockets are sometimes stamped backward. Its much better to find the problem during assembly, rather than waiting until problems show up after reassembly and reinstallation.
Maintaining Valve Timing
During a valve job, it is essential to keep the timing chain or belt in place to maintain correct valve timing. Position the number one cylinder at TDC. Some overhead cam engines use a single long chain for a cam drive. The chain can be wedged against its guides with a tapered block of wood.
the chain tensioner on some ohc engines must be wedged to keep the chain in position during cylinder head removal. courtesy of nissan motors.
Some engines have a lower and upper chain. These engines do not require special attention to wedging the chain. Be sure to look for hidden head bolts and check the repair manual before removing the OHC head.
