That bolt is simply a steady. Once the chain is adjusted you tension that to hold it in place. The adjustment is inside the front cover. The generator is threaded and a lock ring acts as a cam to adjust the tension. Too tight it makes noise, too loose same thing. Loosen the set screw and use a piece of brass and tap the ring to adjust. It MAY show you in your Book of Information?
