Z24 timing chain (I need help REAL BAD)

I have an 86 HD. Replaced the head gasket and attempted to place the camshaft sprocket back onto the camshaft. I don't have any slack! According to the Haynes manual you use a piece of wood to keep the chain from slipping off the bottom sprocket. HELP! I'm stuck. Do I need to come to grips and remove the front cover? Thanks!

Did you wedge a block of wood in the chain to keep it tight when you took the cam sprocket off lf not you have to take the timming cover to reset the slack adjuster

Yes, I did but probably in the process of taking ithe sprocket off or on I lost the tension. Thats the only thing I can think of.
