    You really shouldn't even need the tensioner........welded in place? Yikes.

    Grease? Your wheel bearings.

    If your sprocket is dished you can try flipping it so that it lines up better. Then try to cut off enough chain links so that you don't even need a tensioner and have about .5" slack.

    If the tensioner is set up properly, it will be fine. Been running one on mine since I've built it and have never had an issue.

    Those that have had issues have other problems besides inattention.

    LOL, as work of functual art, they are always a work in progress and only interrupted when the next build starts.

    Or, gotta buy your Baby gifts once in a while so she knows how much you love her.
