What about putting it back on? Am I correct in thinking I can just snug it up as tight as I can by hand, then cut some wood to tighten it the rest of the way?

That's it exactly..........and is also why it's a bad idea to run the saw without a b/c..............especially if you haven't ran it with a chain since installing the clutch.  They can and will spin right off and do bad things.....
-Aaron

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.
