Hope today is a better day for you and your project. I wouldnt dish the wheel if you didnt know how to do it..If you think your having problems now hold on lol..http://www.spookytoothcycles.com/com...category_id=52
If you have a dished sprocket like most come with, you can turn that pretty chrome around and it will put the chain out farther for you. I had to do this on a bike I built for a guy. You also need to open up the sprocket hole or grind down edge on dust cover. Bend the brake arm a little out for bolt clearance . Good luck,keep a cool head,ask for help. If you lived by me i would pop in and help ,but sorry this is only way i can help.
