You know....there are probably going to be some wankers who jump on me for this...but here's my 2 cents on timing cams with the early style nose (crow's foot /46mm nut)

-use the cam turning bar to get the timing where you want it, _._mm overlap @ TDC
-Lock the flywheel ...I use an A/C bracket with two bolts-one on the case and one on the flywheel
-take a 1-13/16" Snap-on Socket (or 46mm, if you can get it...I got mine at Sears), and tighten it to torque specs. (110 #-ft.) with a torque wrench
-Check your timing. if ok, move on, if not, repeat steps 1-3 until you get it right.

You may need to adjust it so that your timing is .1-.2mm 'backwards' so when the nut finally grabs and holds the sprocket, your timing is right where you want it.

Might get tedious, but at least you won't have that stoopid crow's foot slip off the nut, and your cam won't move a dot...
