Default First time build

Hello, I am new to the site and started my build mid March, Stumbled across this site while collecting parts to build my Micargi stretch cruiser. All I can say is thanks to all who have posted here. Sure has helped in lots of ways. I am using the Skyhawk GT-5 Slant head. I hope to finish monday night.
I just need to weld up my exhaust and intall chain and a roller/guide. I have about 12 hours in the fabrication to date and could have started with a different frame to make things easier for my first build. All of the post here have sorted out a lot of my forseen obsticals during the fab work. I have ran into a problem using the stock 410 chain with the 68 tooth sprocket from one of the site sponsers. The chain will not wrap around, it actually starts to become out of alignment with the teeth. I didnt find any other info about the sprocket. Should I run the 415 (wider) chain. I did run a file and wire brush over the rough areas of the new sprocket. Any info would be great. I'm looking forward to getting into the tuning and break in phase.

Thanks JD
