Default Re: First build (Worksman)

1.Sprocket installed (the proding with the screw driver worked). I spun the wheel and checked to see if it was centered (might be 1/16 - 1/8" movement side to side....very slight. Very hard to tell if any top to bottom movement if any)
2.Chain and tensioner pulley installed adjusted chain so only about 1/2" - 3/4" play in the chain. Removed spark plug and tried to turn the rear wheel.....oh man is that tight! Is that normal??? I thought maybe it had something to do with the clutch but it made no difference if the clutch was in the in/released position (newbie here please bear with me for the non technical descriptions) I did not try to move it too much until I checked the wealth of knowledge here first.
