Chain sprocket alignment..54.8 mm for the left chain not sure where to measure from.

Early case, L and R camshafts installed, now the sprocket alignment:

1. Front of case to intermediate shaft sprocket measured, and then

2. Straight edge to right side sprocket.

Both measurements same.

3. On to the left, I do not know where the straight edge should be located? And how the 54.8 is factored in.

Lastly on a side note.....with Ps and Cs in, heads, cam towers and camshafts and chains, but not the rockers, installed, my pulley nut I cannot really any longer turn it by hand. I can by wrench at around 15-18lbs. Sounds OK or not?
