Default Re: tight chain

Here are a few photos of my modification of the Tractor Supply spring-loaded roller tensioner. I mounted it on the down tube and cut and welded the stock kit roller in a different configuration. I had some #41 chain and a sprocket so I swapped out the roller for the sprocket. Pressed a bearing into the sprocket and added a helper spring. The sprocket has plenty of lateral movement so it runs where it needs to. Haven't had to touch it since I installed it a year and a half ago. Hope this might be helpful. Dan
