Now how do you get around mounting the sprocket? I mean I just spent 2 hours trying to even it all out and it did but not by a lot. The section of the chain leading into the engine still bounces around a lot. I really don't know what to do. I've seen how spooky tooth sells a wheel with the sprocket already mounted on there so I might just have to go for that. Do you know if anyone sells premounted wheels with sprocket already hooked up? I'd actually pay for someone to do this for me it's that frustrating.
