Default Re: Hi from Australia.

ah fair enough sorry mate..yeah that tensioner look pretty simple to do on the slack side of the driven chain. You could probly do something similar and just have the a pivet point like a hinge or something, flat bit of metal with your nylon on it and a bit of booker rod or something similar giving the abiltiy to give an adjustment to the chain guide similar to the setup they use to raise the motor with a jackshaft setup.

Seems kinda shotty though that it doesnt come with a chain tensioner already.. have you contacted the supplier and asked wats up with that..?
Can you get away with cutting the chain down and using a half link.?
Are the cogs held onto the shaft with just grub screws thats dimpled and using a keyway..?
Can you just align the cogs back to how they should be?
-> Reading this signature was pointless <-
