Balance shaft chain adjustment question.

02 March 2021 - 05:51 PM

65k miles, stock engine (89). I recently reviewed the procedure for adjusting the chain for the balance shafts. The instructions say to loosen the 'special bolt' (their words not mine), push on the 'projection' with a finger (again, their words), and retighten the bolt.
My question: am I correct to understand that I should maintain finger pressure on the 'projection' until I tighten the bolt?
   Also, feel free to chime in with any other information that might be beneficial to me regarding what seems to be a straightforward procedure, because I have found that there is nothing straightforward about doing anything to these cars. Thanks.
