One other thing I do after I get it bolted down is to check the side to side wobble and adjust it straight by tightening and loosening the 9 bolts until straight, then tighten them all down as evenly as possible once the runout is as minimal as possible. You can fine tune it even more by using a dial indicator, but as long as it's under about 1/16" it won't pop off the chain.
More good advice. Lewis is getting great help here from you guys. Thanks.
