Probably not a good idea to tighten using the chain.
Stromski Racing has a special tool just for tightening the cam nut. It is however a bit pricey.
Rather than ordering the cam nut crowfoot and cam holder, I had a machine shop cut of the bottom 5/8'' of a 1 13/16'' 3/4" drive socket and welded a 2'' 1/2'' drive extension on the side.
To hold the cam, I cut off the box end of a 17mm combination wrench and welded about an 18'' pipe onto the open end stub. Now you can tighten the cam nut while holding the cam. It ain't "purddy" but it works.
