Default Re: First Build Thread - BTR Inspired Cruiser

Mounted the engine today and screwed/bolted everything down. Sadly when I put on the chain I was getting a LOT of chain noise. I played with the tensioner a bit and that sorted out the noise on the sprocket side (more or less), but the engine side is noisy. I moved the engine all the way over and am only just avoidiing tire rub, but it looks like the small sprocket on the engine is just enough out of alignment with the sprocket that the chain is rubbing the inner side of the sprocket.

Is moving the wheel sprocket my only option? That'll mean I'll have to get a bent coaster arm or beg borrow a vice from a neighbor...
