Default Jackshaft size issue

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has some experience with putting on a jackshaft. The problem is with the chain size that runs from the sprocket at the front to the rear gears. The chain that came with the kit is

1.) To large and is therefore loose on the rear gears (I doubt if it would even work, let alone be stable).

2.) It isn't long enough.

So trying to use the bike chain instead of the chain that came with the kit I run into issue # 1 reversed. That is to say, the chain fits perfectly on the rear gears but is now to small to have a proper fit on the front sprocket.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this problem without changing the rear gears? (I could do that but don't want to spend a lot of cash on that, since I've already maxed my budget on this project).
