Default Chain keeps breaking?

Hi again guys, I have another question and everyone was so helpful last time I figured I'd ask. Most of our issues with the bike are fixed, and we even threw on a rear rim brake. I managed to ride it around a lot, and it seems fine when running under engine power. But as soon as the clutch is pulled in, there are popping noises every few seconds, and I assume this is attributed to my chain problems. I have posted a pic of the chain breaks, and it is the same exact links every time, the inside link facing towards the spokes. I think this is because the chain running from the sprocket isn't perfectly alligned with the engine sprocket (pic attached), but to fix this we're going to have to move the engine to the left, and the muffler will probably hit the pedals because there isn't much space left (pic attached). Can anyone help me with this problem? Thanks in advance!
