How to tighten timing chain?

I am disassembling my motor and am about to remove the generator gear. Once it all goes back together- do I need to mark the chain for timing or how do I properly tighten the timing chain?

Thanks,
Jim

Jim....

Go to the technical page and click on the Model 40 repair manual. Covers the same motor as used in your car.....
