My memory was correct. I have attached a pic showing the tab that prevents the chain from moving on the crank sprocket. All you need to do is overcome the vacuum pump spring pressure on the actuator to pull the chain back up to the camshaft sprocket and make the ends meet.
I'm glad I take pics of just about everything I do.

Disregard the orientation of the picture. With the engine in the car the tab is at the bottom.

I have always done this job by myself but I always use alot of tie wraps.
