Chain Adjust

I found this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQrm3v9CV6w


1. Is it a good video to follow?
2. Is there a better way than just eyeballing the chain to see if it is aligned correctly?

Axel Nut. Axel Foley. Axl Rose. Gotta commend the guy for actually using a torque wrench on his rear axle nut: I never have. Video seems legit to me.

definitely one of the place i don't use a torque wrench either, tighten it up with the same tool you're use to try and loosen it in the field, the cotter pin will take care of you.
