Default Re: chain maintenance

My initial setup had the chain super tight, no tensioner. Since then i've tried to get a 1/2-1'' play. I get the same tighten/slacken, I have very little runout and a wobble witch does not improve with tightening mounting bolts. there is a bent axle I'm going to replace and i guess i'll get a new chain to entertain the stretch chain theory, its a junk chain anyway, i can see the pins where the rollers seem too small on some not all the links. I'll keep looking for a success story on the subject. A good spring tensioner seems like it'd correct flaws should they re-occur.
