Is the sprocket warped? That's always fun. Make sure nothing is moving axlewise or flex on the chassis and engine mounting also.....doesn't take much torque to move things around if they're not rugged enough

I'm not giving up just yet. I'll check the flex and the sprocket again. It seems to be running true, and the torque converter may be flexing some since I moved the drive gear to the outside of the shaft.

I built a Schwin 3 wheeler with a front wheel electric motor and battery pack in the rear basket for my girlfriend. She rides it everywhere and has never had a problem. The thing is plenty strong.
