Re: Motor Squealing
I never thought about soldering the case together. I figured since it was cheap cast pot aluminum that i was pretty much SOL. I will have to try that as well.
My chain runs relatively tight. Its typically too loose and tends to bind up. The hardest part is getting the chain set right because my rear drive sprocket isn't centered on the wheel. I am using a cheap 32 spoke quick release aluminum wheel and from the looks of it, the sprocket is for a 36 spoke wheel or even a cheap steel wheel.
Haven't figured out a solution to that, other than running it cockeyed and hoping for the best!
