    Am I missing something or is it just really hard to install the timing chain on the cam sprocket?

    I rebuilt the whole topend so everything but the flywheel is off ,I put the topend back together ,installed the camshaft and cant get the chain around the sprocket to install on the cam, the tensioner is out....it keeps getting jamed on the removeable chain slide?????????that slide has to be in before you slide the sprocket back on right?
