Sorry slightly off topic, but you know it is recommended to pull the cam cover off and zip tie the cam chain to the cam before you ever pull out a cam chain adjuster...This is to avoid the risk of the chain jumping a cam sprocket tooth and messing up the timing when the tension is reduced.

My question is, is there a position that you can put the engine in, so as to avoid having to do this? Is there a position where the chain is the most taut and so is less likely to jump?

APE say to put the piston position at TDC...Is this the reason?

Thanks.
