Re: officially done with chain tensioner
i was once like all of you. having issues because of idler failures.
i mounted the engine so both chains are taught.
it will probably take a few remountings & head scratching to get it right.
while you are at it, i would say retapping all mounts on the engine.
get a half link for the peddle side chain. in case it may help.
after i changed over to running w/o an idler, i have has 0 issues with the chain assembly.
