Default Thanks for the help so far..need a little more!

Hi all,
I’m new to this great hobby and had a couple of questions. My bike is almost complete and I was wondering just how freely the wheel spins when not in gear. Mine seems to be very stiff. It could be that the whole engine is not lubed up yet but I was a little concerned.
Also, I bought the bike as a project and it had been used. I have no idea how many miles it has on it. How would you tackle the oil mixture? I don’t know if it was properly broken in etc. In retrospect I would never have gone this route but just bought a new engine.
One last thing, due to fitting I was only able to install the chain tensioner from above the chain coming down, putting pressure on top of the chain….does this pose any issues?
I’ll post a picture soon…’s starting to look like a bike!
