Unhappy 04 4.7 with p0016

Hello, I am a new to here. I have a 2004 ram 1500 with a 4.7. Recently had to replace the head gaskets and replaced the time chain and sprockets at the same time. It ran fine initially, but after the third day the MIL light came on with a p0344 (cam position sensor) code. Replaced the cam and crank sensors, but did not fix. Check the timing and it appeared to be off a tooth, so I redid and now the p0344 code is gone. But I have a p0016 code now. HELP.....What is next?

Just took off the passenger side valve cover and rotated the motor several (3)times and timing marks did not match up again. On both previous installs I double check both times for proper alignment. What am I missing? possibly a bad tensioner and it is jumping teeth (But it starts and runs good, but with codes;-(

Well I went after the timing today, more or less starting over. But I noticed something while I was tightening the harmonic balancer. When I tightened it totally up it would rotate before the cam gears did, making the timing out. I had to jump one tooth on the primary chain crank gear for everything to line up (apparently there was slack on the non tensioning side allowing to rotate before engaging all chains). Anyway it is all back together and running good. What a headache.
