xr200 cam chain adjuster

I have a 1991 xr200 and am replacing the cam chain. Do I need to back out or tighten the adjustment screw before installing the chain? Do I need to reset the screw somehow before I install.

leave the adjuster out and if you get a mate to push the adjuster bar down witha small screwdriver, you shouls have enough looseness to fit the chain, but have you checked the chain guides as they wear as well.

if they are ok, you can replace just the chain without stripping too much off.
