Default Re: help, chain, sprocket

Thanks for your suggestions. I'll look at the alignment. This problem is frustrating because when I first got the engine and installed it, it worked like a charm for several rides before I started having problems and nothing but problems since, including a ruined rear wheel. This time I'll add some detail on my actions. I wanted to install without the tensioner so I put spacers in the back motor mounts to move the engine forward, installed new studs. The chain is not too tight, maybe too loose. Should I reinstall the tensioner? Also, the chain isn't just coming off now, it is climbing on the sprocket and locking. Would come off, I suppose, if I tried to ride it.
