Default Re: tight chain

Check out chain tensioners on this forum. Some folks put a tensioner on the pedal chain and nothing on the engine chain, others use a half link on the engine chain to get the overall length close enough to avoid using a tensioner.
Here's a link to a informational thread:

In my post, #6, I linked to another thread that shows one of the safest ways (IMHO) to use a tensioner on the engine drive chain.
"It's a chinagirl. It's a sometimes fun little engine that often will break your heart. It's disposable.

Does not come with a fortune cookie."
