Of all engines ever produced, that has to be the easiest to change the chain on. Remove anything on the front of the engine that's in your way, remove the crank damper with a harmonic balancer pulley and remove the front cover. Normally the top gear and the chain are the only items that need replacement. The top gear has a reference mark on it. Point the mark straight down. The bottom gear is also marked turn the crank so it points straight up, in line with the other mark. Put the chain on the top gear and loop the bottom over the bottom gear and place the top gear on the cam, without allowing it to turn.
If any plastic gear teeth are lying in the front of the oil pan, scoop them out with your fingers. Make sure that all gasket material has been completely removed, and wipe all gasket surfaces clean with a rag with carb cleaner on it...especially where the pan meets the block . Discard the bottom gasket and grind about a third of the inner cover lip off and fill the cavity with rtv silicone so it bulges at the top (nice big fat bead) Install wet, placing the bottom part in first and don't slide it around. make sure the two locating studs are through the cover and put all bolts back in finger tight. Smooth over any silicone that squeezed out of the bottom and leave it to "skin over" (about half hour).Finish tightening the cover and replace everything you removed.
Although it is not a terribly difficult job, I do suggest you get a haynes or chilton's manual to help guide you. They are inexpensive and will help with many other items as well.
Good Luck.
