    thanks a lot. it works pretty good but it bounces up and down a lil more than i like but if i move the hose clamp up a bit it will be better.

    ok thats awsome! if you run into problems with the chain hitting the engine mount try bending the arm that the pulleys attached to.

    Add a skateboard wheel, with real bearings and it will be even way better and even more quiet. No groove needed so close to the engine. Yep these types are the best. Nice Job.

    You will thanks me... after you add the wheel. LOL
    This type with sealed bearings/ then install it using washers so the wheel spins freely and is centered on the chain
