Sounds to me like your have issues with the idler / tensioner , the VCT should turn but not easy at all till you bleed the oil out of it
The VCT gear is not there to take the slack out thats the tensioners job , I would check to make sure one is not loose or bearing goin out on them , thats about the only place you can get slack from
