Yeah, I'll be one scott. I wouldn't use the chains to hold the timing while you torque it.

Guys the timing shouldn't slip that much while you torque the nut. Yeah the flange and chain sprocket can move sometimes a little when you do this,

On the later style if you are holding the timing sprocket with the tool, it won't move. I thought the 79 had the bolt and not he 46mm nut.

With the nut the spring washer should insulate the sprocket from moving. If it doesn't, try putting some oil between the 46mm and the sprocket.
